Glendora Vegetarian Club 

Notes from Glendora: Next week at 6:30 p.m. on CBS Channel 6 News, you can see all new vegan commercials to help the animals.

The best vegan ice cream is Price Chopper’s private label. Stewart’s, too, has a private label vegan ice cream.

Just about everybody now has a vegetarian hamburger. Even McDonald’s is considering it. Continue to enjoy Burger King’s Vegan Whopper.

Madeline says Kit Kat has a new white chocolate vegan candy bar.

Madeline adopted a whole family of 5 puppies rather than see them go homeless. They are endearing.

Thank you, Advertiser, for your articles announcing local events.

Joke of the week – A man is walking down the street carrying in his arms a darling cocker spaniel puppy. He meets his friend. “What do you think of this cocker spaniel puppy I bought for my wife?” His friend said, “That’s not a bad trade!”

Gilead’s Body & Soul Pantry

CENTER BRUNSWICK – According to the calendar Spring is to begin in March. Let’s hope Mother Nature looks at the calendar. Well enough of that, let’s spring into the menu for his month. People say I’m a bit of a ham, so that will be the entrée for this month. The vegetable and potato that we are serving is a secret as of this writing. Dessert is also going to be a surprise because one of the possibilities depends on Mother Nature controlling the temperature.

Our hours remain the same, 3:00-6:00 PM and as usual Lisa and her workers will have your pantry order ready for you to pick up. If you have never visited us before you may call Lisa at 518-279-3576 to order the items you need.
