Good timing. Same day as Baltimore Vegfest. Someday AR groups will cooperate with one another to have a national schedule, even a local schedule, to give people a chance to join in several activities, or at the least, to concentrate attendance. FoA comments: A World Vegetarian Festival Day sounds like a good idea for cooperation. Maybe this will be the start. Look at all the travel and hotel expenses saved by attending locally but thinking globally. And everyone gets to benefit from the shared media coverage.
