Glendora Vegetarian Club

Where do you go to eat if you break your ankle?  Ihop

Go Vegan: Leahey No beef brown gravy; Ivy’s; beefless roast beef; Viana cowgirl veggie steaks; Vegan Sweets, frosted donuts.

Christmas Eve through December 30, Glendora will be doing vegan commercials on Channel 6 CBS Albany between 6:30-7:00pm.

The devil challenged St. Peter to a baseball game, said St. Peter, “I don’t see how you can win; all the good players are up here.”  Answered the devil, “but all the umpires are down here.”

Google American Vegan Society winter issue for a supreme recipe for black bean burgers.

After all that is said and done, the only thing that really matters is how did you treat others, others include animals.  Glendora will go so far as to say you will never have the peace of God unless you are vegan. The Glendora Vegetarian Club meets the last Wednesday of every month, 6:00pm, at 45 Elm St., Nassau Village, bring a potluck (no animal products) and enjoy our fellowship.
