Glendora Veganism

Veganism started with a push 30 years ago by a young, dedicated, energetic man named Jay Dinshah. He was appalled and incredulous at the cruelty of people to their fellow creatures of God and their miraculous life. But he pressed forward until he could make a difference in this horror. He started an annual world conference on veganism, for veganism and of veganism. He founded the American Vegan Society in Malaga, NJ. Glendora remembers one Vegan World Congress at the University of Maine, Orono.

Mr. Dinshah advertised for a wife in a Great Britain publication, and he could not have done better than Freya. She carried on his work with amazing vigor and effectiveness. I love you, Freya!
