Meet me at the Nikon Theatre at Jones Beach

And I will put into your hands the Christian Vegetarians Association booklet, "Are We Good Stewards of God's Creation?"

I'll be there with Jennifer and Camillo just outside the entrance during the Harvest 09 Christian Rock Conference to answer questions and distribute vegetarian/vegan information.

Post Event Info/Picture Update for you:

NY Long Island Harvest 09 w/Greg Laurie Saturday, June 13, 2009 Nikon Theater at Jones Beach, Long Island, NY
Jennifer:"Our first CVA leafleting! Camillo, Carl, and I met in the parking lot shortly after 6 for this event that was due to start at 7. To our surprise, hundreds of people were already in the theater. (So next time, it seems it would be good to aim for 2 hours before the event start time, at least for this kind of event.) There had been rain showers earlier, but happily no heavy downpours while we leafleted. Halfway through, Jennifer was approached by one security guard who told her we weren't supposed to be leafleting if we weren't with the groups performing at the venue--but after saying that, rather than insist we stop, he went on to express sympathy for our purpose, saying that last week at his own church they were doing this kind of thing, and had a function where they were serving some vegetarian bologna, and he asked for a bunch of the brochures to take back with him to the church! Then he said if anyone gave me any trouble, to tell them he said it was okay for us to be there. What a sweetheart. The only other noteworthy interaction was with another person handing out bookmarks promoting a series of summer Christian beach events. He seemed annoyed with what we were promoting. At one point, he was intercepting concertgoers before they reached Jennifer, and telling them, "Eat meat! Meat is good!" But that didn't last long. We had our smiles on, and continued our leafleting unperturbed. We handed out our three entire boxes of brochures by 7:30, so we won't be returning for the second night's performance. Next time, I would probably ask for 6 boxes (for each night)--at this venue at least, I'm sure a similar-sized crew could hand out twice what we did, starting an hour earlier.[Pictures coming--we took some shots of ourselves in action, wearing the CVA shirt!]Yours,Jennifer"
