Many thanks to Angela Baletto for serving as secretary.
Unfortunately she cannot continue to serve and we need someone to take over. The job entails attending board meetings (usually on the second Sunday of each month) and taking minutes.
Please call the office if interested.
To have and have not
The World Health Organization claims that one billion people on our planet suffer from malnutrition. An equal number suffer the ill affects from too many calories and foods that are too high in fat and sugar, and too low in fiber.
There are six and a half billion people on planet earth. Thus, nearly a third of them are in trouble from either too much or too little food. If billions of animals were not raised for food, using up vast quantities of grain (40 % of all grown), water, electricity and oil, then everyone on earth could have access to enough healthful food. That is one solution to two different problems. If you or someone you know wants to consider going veggie, log on to www.cok.net and request a free vegetarian starter guide. The Compassion Over Killing website has lots of good information. The current issue has a summer grilling guide (yes, vegans can grill).
