The Chautauqua County Vegetarian-Vegan Society will hold its monthly meeting on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the YWCA, 58 South Portage Street in Westfield.
This month's speaker will be Monica Y. Haritan, Holistic Animal Practitioner from Russell, Pa. Animals play an intricate role in our lives as healers, teachers and guides. They love us unconditionally and because of this they take on our emotions, energy and feelings then manifest conditions both physical and emotional.
Monica will discuss the most significant factors that affect the health of our pets, then share ways of resolving them through holistic nutrition, therapeutic aromatherapy, homeopathy, herbs, Reiki, intuitive energy and biofeedback scanning.
As a special bonus this month, the first 30 attendees at the dinner will receive a vegan goodie bag.
The menu for the dinner will be healthy pot luck. Those coming are invited, but not required, to bring a nutritious dish to share which will serve 8 to 12 people, as well as the recipe. This should be vegan (no meat, eggs, milk, butter or other dairy products used in preparing it), and organic if possible.
The cost is $6.00, or free if you're bringing a dish to share. For more information or to make a reservation, call Gail at 753-7761 or 753-2205, or Anne at 782-4334.
All meetings are open to the public. Those attending do not need to be vegan or vegetarian.
