On Wednesday, October 12, 2005 at 7 p.m. at the Liverpool Public Library in the village of Liverpool, about 40 people attended NY People for Animal Rights' free, open-to-the public presentation by Harold Brown. Harold is a former cattle farmer who now is an advocate for the animals of Farm Sanctuary of Watkins Glen, NY. Free vegan snacks were enjoyed by all. The theme of Farmer Brown's talk was "Plant based vs. Animal based Agriculture: Sustainable Farming in the 21st Century", and his presentation was inspiring!
EVER EAT THANKSGIVING DINNER WITH A TURKEY?
Twenty-Year Holiday Celebration Gains Momentum as Honored Compassionate Tradition
Watkins Glen, NY � October 25, 2005, � Farm Sanctuary, the nation�s leading farm animal shelter and advocacy organization, invites everyone to a Thanksgiving dinner where turkeys sit as the guests of honor instead of the holiday menu. Celebration FOR the turkeys, now marking its 20th year, is part of the nationally recognized and celebrity supported Adopt-A-Turkey Project and serves as an integral part of the program�s hands-on educational outreach focusing on compassionate consumption.
This annual Celebration FOR the Turkeys will be held on Saturday, November 19, 2005, from 12:00 p.m. � 4:00 p.m. A potluck dinner will be held at the Watkins Glen Community Center and all guests are asked to bring a vegan dish (no meat, eggs, or dairy products) to feed eight people. Ticket cost is $5 per family and registration is required.
Following the potluck dinner and special presentations, guests may travel to the Watkins Glen Shelter for the highlight of this alternative holiday tradition, the famous Feeding of the Turkeys Ceremony. Fortunate rescued turkeys, now enjoying the freedom of their peaceful safe haven, will feast on a special meal of squash, cranberries and pumpkin pie.
For more information, or to register for the event, please call 607-583-2225 ext 221. To register online, visit www.farmsanctuary.org. Reservation deadline is November 11, 2005.
