Hastings Vegan Dining Club Annual Picnic

Some of the delights from this year’s vegan picnic on the East Hill.

The Hastings Vegan Dining Club Fourth Annual Picnic on the East Hill recently took place in fine weather. About a dozen of us met, including Shelly, the new canine member.

The pot-luck picnic included various salads, vol au vents, sandwiches, savoury tarts, sausage rolls and raw vegetables. Desserts included fruit cake, upside down plum cake, muffins, fresh fruit and much more!

Afterwards, many of us went into Hastings to celebrate the opening of the vegan 1066 Cake Stand!

    Hi There, I have long been an animal advocate and gave up eating meat years ago when I was a teenager and did some volunteer work for the SPCA here in Canada–that is when the reality of how awful the lives of animals raised for meat became clear. Since that time I have campaigned for animals in every walk of life. One of my priorities these days is to raise awareness about horse slaughter in Canada–a very inhumane and horrible business that my own Canadian government sanctions. There is so much wrong with horse slaughter and yet many people are not even aware that it is happening. I am looking for animal advocates that can spread the word and information. I have an online petition that provides just that, and my goal is 10,000 signatures as I have been told by a gov insider that with that number of signatures, it would have an impact in our parliament. I am associated with many animal welfare and horse advocate groups across Canada and the US through Face Book . I am reaching out to you in the hope that you will share my petition and it will reach more people. In return, if there is any likewise effort that you need help with, I am very willing to help. Thanks, Dana Here is the link to my petition: http://www.change.org/petitions/the-canadian-government-pass-bill-c-322-and-end-horse-slaughter-in-canada
