Glendora Vegetarian Club 

The American Vegan Society writes that more families are vegan because there are more innovations, a wider desire for it and greater availability. More and more vegan foods look just like the foods people are used to eating. Many people are waking up to the fact that we have to save the planet, so consumers want “plant-forward, climate-healthy menus.” Food service companies are now providing it. For more information, call Freya at 856-694-2887.


1. What does a report card teach a parent? You do not have to lift weights to raise a dumbbell.

2. Why was the baby shoe crying? His mother was a sneak, and his daddy was a loafer.

3. Mommy, we had a fire in school today!

Oh, that’s dreadful.

We’ve been rehearsing for it all year.

4. A man in the White House saw a gold phone and was told he could talk to God on that phone. He talked to God for 3 minutes. He asked, “How much do I owe you?”


3 months later he was transferred to Israel. He saw a gold phone there, and he talked to God for 3 minutes. He asked, “How much do I owe you?”


“What?! It cost me $300 at the White House.”

“Over here it’s a local call.”

5. Why did the mother call her son Halley’s Comet? He came around once every 75 years.
