Summerfest recalled

by Rae Schlecht

Every once in a while something comes along that changes our lives forever. For me, one of those things was attending my first Summerfest back in 1994. “What is Summerfest?” you say. Summerfest is a five-day vegan conference sponsored by the North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS) of which I am a proud member of the board. It is held at the University of Pittsburgh in Johnstown, PA.

At Summerfest, great natural vegan food is prepared under the direction of international gold medal winning chef Ken Bergeron. Educational workshops and lectures on health, lifestyle issues, animal rights and environmental issues are held. There are vegan cooking classes, all presented by leading vegan doctors, dieticians, chefs and social activists. There are social gatherings for singles, families and children. There are excercise programs, yoga, meditation, and star gazing amongst the many, many activities. There are also wonderful children’s programs. You have a chance to make new vegan friends. Everything is included in the price.

Do this today, as the rates are cheaper earlier you register. Five days at Summerfest!! Your life will be changed for the better, forever. I guarantee it.
