Old Saybrook. But in the summer I hate it because it's infested with summer people.

YAY I was hoping to find a little connecticut area of the message boards. Live in Middletown. (Also have lived in Norwich and Plainfield) Moved here from California two and a half-ish years ago. Ive shopped at It's Only Natural quite a few times, even long before i went veg. Havent gotten an oppourtunity to go to the restaurant yet. Maybe we can set up a little outting sometime to try it out. (plus im dying to meet people who will eat there, cause most of my friends sure wont )



Hope to see more posts about local stuff. I know I'll share when I find things.

Hi Connecticutters, I'm pretty new to the board .... There's a few things I'd like to tell you all about...



1. Vegan Meetups ... I've been trying to attend one but they are always cancelled due to a lack of rsvp's. If anyone is interested in a Vegan meetup please go to this site http://vegan.meetup.com/rsvp/?e=2720705&v=-1 and register for them so we can get one going?



2. There's a PETA rally against KFC Monday, August 16th. All you have to do is show up.

3:00-4:00 PM

KFC: 501 Farmington Ave

Hartford, CT



PETA will provide all the leaflets, posters, and stickers needed for the demo, so all youll need to bring is yourself! I hope you can make time to attend this important demonstration and send a strong message to KFC that their cruelty to animals will not be tolerated. If you have any questions contact [email protected]




3. Here's a post I tossed up a few weeks ago concerning sharing a bulk foods order. Please check it out-- https://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...ad.php?t=21122 perhaps we can save some cash and eat heartily together?



Thanks! And I'd love to meet some CT Vegans soon!

Hello LesDom, I'm not the organizer of the rally -- just a fellow PETA activist. In fact this will be my first on-site protest. I'm not sure how many usually turn up for these things but I'm sure every warm body is needed. Joe Hinkle is the laison for Connecticut and he's very helpful. You can email him here: [email protected] After the rally-- in the evening-- we will be having a meeting. Joe will be letting us know where it will be.

After the rally there will be an activist meeting at Tisane Tea and Coffee Bar at 537 Farmington Ave in Hartford. For anyone interested, would you like to have it there directly after the rally at 4:15pm or rather have it later at 6pm? Please let me know what would be better for those of you interested in attending, so I can let Joe know.

Thanks!!

CT Peace Activists ~



Thursday, August 12th:

Marchers will be doing gardening in two different locations in the

morning, and will then head up to the newly-reclaimed green space at Broad

St and Farmington Ave to talk to people and chill out on their rest day.

In the evening, at Artspace (555 Asylum St) there will be workshops on

street theater at the RNC with the Hartbeat Ensemble at their apartment,

presentations on permaculture, direct action training if enough people

feel inclined, and a workshop on anti-authoritarian organizing with the

CLASH Collective. There will also be music and perhaps film showings.

Hmm, I work until 6pm and it would take me about 20 min to get into Hartford. It might not be worth it.

It's time to spread the word ~ I'm looking for a vegetarian roommate! I live in New Hartford, so if anyone knows someone who's looking for an inexpensive rent to share with a super nice person let me know. I have a two bedroom, and it's time to rent one of the rooms that I'm not using. The rent is $325 utilities included!!! I've already signed up for 2 roommate searches online, but I'm afraid it's going to be hard to find a vegetarian. I really don't think I could live with someone who eats meat.
