So often in our community it seems like there is no place for us vegans to gather. Well on June 4th there are two separate events to go hang out and meet other like minded people. If you are new to the area or new to a veggie lifestyle both places will offer the opportunity to get to know our community better. Not new, well then it’s a great time to catch up with friends!

First up, starting at 1pm and running until 4pm is local farm sanctuary Green Acre’s 6 year anniversary open house celebration. If you have always told yourself that you want to get out and volunteer to help the animals this is the perfect opportunity. Both the humans and animals at Green Acre are lovely and the setting is beautiful. Plus it’s a great place family setting. There will be food and a raffle. Also if you are able donations are always nice to help maintain the Sanctuary!

Next up starting at 1:30pm is the second Vegan Dine Out being held at Marco Polo’s in Salem. Maybe you are looking for a smaller setting and are interested in good food and great conversation, then this might be the option for you. If you are interested in this event you will need to RSVP through the google group here or email the wonderful lady putting this all together, Norma at

FYI- you must have a Google account in order to join the Google Group and receive email updates on when the dine-outs will happen (first Sun. of every month). You can create one even if you’re using a different email provider. It doesn’t have to be a Gmail email. You can click here to make one. Or if you prefer, you can be manually added to the list/group if you contact Norma at
Can’t make this one? July’s is going to be held at Venti’s South and we will get you info as it gets closer.

Unfortunately, I work on the 4th and won’t have the opportunity to attend either event so I’ll need to live vicariously through you. Please take pictures and share either on the Cherry City Vegan Discussion group page or Our Instagram page. Don’t do social media? You could also email them to me directly at and I can share them for you!
