we attended Vegetarian Summerfest In Johnstown PA wow!
An amazing time was had by all the participants who went to this event which lasted 5 days. We were fed, given a place to stay , classes to attend, fun to be had and new friends to be made from all over the United States and more. Look up this event and see that there is so much learning to be had by attending one of these events in your area and see for yourself what I might be talking about. What really made the whole trip for me was the beautiful mother and daughter who joined us at dinner one night. (they were from Wisconsin too) So the mom told this story and I will share it with you to the best of my ability. She said her 14 year old daughter had become a vegetarian , let’s say 6 months ago, and that they could handle as they felt she would soon be changing her mind as young people do. So about 2 months ago this same daughter told her parents she had now become a vegan. They tried to convince her in lots of ways to change her mind… So mom found this event , and figured that if she brought her daughter here she would learn that it was the wrong thing for her to be doing for her health. Mom then proceeded to say, and now that I have come here I have learned that I was wrong. I know that it will be hard to me to give up some of my favorite foods especially the dairy . I will take it slowly .Next year I will be sending my husband with my daughter to this wonderful vegetarian summerfest. From this I say to you all. Arm yourself with knowledge, it is power.
