- all Veggie folks are meeting at 3685-19th St/Dolores, we are in front of the Dolores park and next to the church where we used to feed veggie food to the poor. Yes, Dixie and some of us was able to do that with NO Penny Opera until the event was dissolved.
Anybody want to give out their cell phone as a contact number for the day of the event in case someone is lost or late?
Anybody want to pickup signs at Duncan street which is l/2 mile away? Those who are carrying them should also return them....
update: IDA and other organizations will be there. I expect 30 to 40 people present
Bring your smile, colorful clothing.
If you are wearing a veggie shirt, make sure the letters are big and not hiding underneath your jacket.
The first group of people will be Honor students
The 2nd group of people, which is people like OUR group, the COMMUNITY/Non profits
then the rest of the groups marching are UNION representatives and the very last are Classic cars,,

- SFVS at CESAR CHAVEZ PARADEFrom: AngelaThe Cesar Chavez parade was a huge hit this year. As many of you may know, Cesar Chavez was not only a human rights activist who fought for farm workers' right, but also he was a vegetarian.Many SFVSers dressed up as vegetables to celebrate the life of Cesar Chavez and his great impact on our society. Rasa Vitalia started this tradition by dressing up as Miss Broccoli. Greg and Ben soon followed and dressed up as Kale twinsies! And Patly and Angela dressed up as Carrot twinsies!
Many students SFVSers also joined in on the fun this year by marching and chanting in Spanglish, "Go Veg!"
