Any last minute suggestions? Get them to me quickly! We're posting it all over town soon and we'll blanket the city with flyers and posters.

 

It is great to involve the Public Community and I know many of you made good friends with Portland residents last year.

 

Also check out www.veganvacations.net for updates and all the details.

 

Thanks!
