Hello Boston Vegetarian Society List!

Six days from now you'll be exploring the amazing offerings of over 115 exhibitors and a full day of fantastic speakers at our 12th Annual Boston Vegetarian Food Festival!
But we need YOU to pull it all off!  Volunteer now and be part of the team that brings this event to life!
We need LOTS more volunteers -- whether for 2 hours, half day, or all day, please hit Reply and say "I'm in!" 
1)  Festival Volunteers Needed
2)  Festival Exhibitor List - Feast Your Eyes
3)  BVS Radio Shows
4)  Events of Interest
This one was so important I couldn't wait and put it right at the top.        Hit Reply and our volunteer coordinator will then write you with options.  Are you an early bird?  Help us 7:30-10 AM next Saturday and you'll be done before the festival begins.  All kinds of tasks need doing all day, and it's fun to be part of the action!
If anyone wonders what there is to eat if you don't eat animal foods, point them to this list!  Free food sampling galore, and lots to buy, as well.  Bring cash and checks, since most exhibitors can't take credit cards. 
Beyond food, you will find products for a cruelty-free lifestyle -- animal-friendly, fashionable women's dress shoes and accessories, body care and household products, enlightening books (meet lots of authors!) and hard-to-find items like vegan baseball gloves.  Meet admirable nonprofits who are working for a better world.
Be sure to visit our new additional exhibitor area on the 2nd floor!  We have too much to fit in our big exhibitor room at street level so have added a second space upstairs! (Speaker Room and Kids' Activity Room are also on the 2nd floor.)

BVS hits the airwaves with a double on Sunday morning.  BVS Treasurer Samir Sanghani will be guest on Mat Schaffer's Boston Sunday Review on WBCN 104.1 FM during the 8 - 9 AM hour.
We will also talk about the Festival on Pat Whitley's Restaurant Show on WRKO 680 AM.

Tuesday, November 13, 2007, 7 PM Will Tuttle, PhD - Lecture/presentation on The World Peace Diet First Universalist Society 262 Chestnut Street, Franklin, MA If you missed hearing Will Tuttle at our Peace Abbey event in June, or would like to see him again, here's a chance!  Many have found his book, The World Peace Diet, to be a powerful work.
See you October 20!
