Glendora Vegetarian Club 

Glendora is 93 and vegan. Many dear people gathered on May 1st to enjoy a vegan feast of pizza (with mozzarella), a big green salad, drinks, chocolate and vanilla cake and ice cream. All these vegan treats were served to celebrate Glendora’s birthday. There were several people and one dog. Guests came from as far away as Guilderland and Pittsfield. The oldest was 89. The most distant birthday greeting came from Hawaii. For 28 years “Vegan Outreach” has vehemently opposed cruelty to animals.


1. The doctor said to his patient, “You have six months to live.” The patient said, “I can’t get all my bills paid in six months. The doctor said, “Then I’ll give you another six months.”

2. A Chat with Glendora always has a happy ending. People are glad when it’s over.

3. A freighter carrying a load of yo-yos struck a reef and sank – ten times!
