Not long until I’ll be winging my way to France – next Thursday to be exact. And since it IS Friday, I thought I’d bring out that old French phrase we all know and love: “Grace à Dieu c’est Vendredi! Thank God it’s Friday – what a Friday it is, indeed.
We just got Joe, our Marketplace manager, and Dan Ladermann off to San Francisco this AM , driving “Gracie” our Living Light mobile home and pulling “Gratitude” our refrigerated mini- kitchen packed with supplies for World Veg Day in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. They are in Petaluma with a flat tire, but we know all will be well, and for that we are thankful.
Martine Lussier and Cherie followed this afternoon, and will be the divas who cater a beautiful raw vegan meal for 150+ people on Saturday night. Speaking of thanks – we are delighted that Martine and Cherie will be assisted by several able and talented Living Light graduates (more on that later). We know who is well-trained! (Sigh of relief). It’s not only the 13th Annual World Vegetarian Day, but it’s the 40th Annual International Vegetarian Conference. It’s held all over the world and this year in California, so the gathering in Golden Gate Park this weekend should be especially memorable. Our whole staff has been busy for weeks preparing for the event. For those attending – have a great time, and be sure to report back on the festivities!
