Meat-Out 2008

Reserve Now For This Event

On Saturday, March 8, the Mid-Hudson Vegetarian Society celebration of the great American Meat-Out will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation on Sawkill Road in Kingston, beginning at 5 pm.

Meat-Out is an obvious knock-off of the “Smoke-Out” campaign. Like its predecessor, it is designed as a one-day challenge to those who still consume harmful stuff, to kick the habit just once, to see how it feels. Meat-Out is a great opportunity for members to invite a veg-curious friend out for a good vegan meal and to learn about vegetarian choices.

This year’s Meat-Out speaker will be Holly Cheever, DVM. Holly graduated from Harvard University in 1971 and Cornell’s Veterinary College in 1980. She has been in private practice ever since (with time off for maternal behavior). In addition to caring for critters, she assists local law officials in animal cruelty case investigations, lobbies for improved animal protection laws as a board member of the New York State Humane Association and is vice president of the Association of Veterinarians for Animal Rights. She lectures to all ages on environmental and animal welfare subjects. Her family consists of a husband, four children, and an endearing and eccentric collection of dogs, cats, guinea pigs, horses, cows, goats, and chickens – many of them rescued from abuse cases. She invites local children’s groups to her farm for field trips, and for several years wrote a regular column for Good Housekeeping as “the GH Vet”.

The cost of the Meat-Out dinner is $10 per person with a vegan appetizer, salad or dessert to share, $20 without. MHVS will prepare main dishes and beverages will be provided. For the health of the environment, please bring your own plates and utensils. Reservations: rsvp@mhvs.org  or 845•876•2626.
