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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
