This month, thanks go out to Elaina Luther of Culture Club 101 in Pasadena for hosting our June meeting, and to local WAPF member Ram Basu for setting up our online RSVP page for this event. Thank you both, Elaina and Ram! And thanks also to Theresa Cardinali for delivering an important message to the group about our Ethnic Nights.
As your chapter leader, I’m grateful to our active and enthusiastic community for keeping the fire burning when I have to be out of town. The June 2012 meeting was the first I’ve ever missed, so if anyone has any news to report from the gathering, please let me know, and I’ll post it.
For others who were also unable to attend, the group enjoyed a potluck dinner followed by some important announcements. The highlight of the evening was Elaina’s showing of the film Farmaggedon. If you missed it, you can see the movie trailer and get more information at: http://farmageddonmovie.com/.
Thanks again to all who made our June meeting happen! I’m looking forward to our next meeting on July 31st when we’ll host our 4th in a series of Ethnic Nights. See our Meeting Schedule for more information. Until then, don’t forget to check out these important WAPF events happening in July:
• The second annual Fermentation Festival on Sunday, July 15th in Santa Barbara, hosted by the Santa Barbara CA Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation. For more info, go to their website at: http://wapfsantabarbara.blogspot.com/.
