The deadline for nominations is November 30 of each year. Send your selection to Audrey Fluke Vegetarian Award, The Vegetarian Resource Group, P.O. Box 1463, Baltimore, MD 21203. Or e-mail to vrg@vrg.org. Nomination letters become property of The Vegetarian Resource Group.

In 1982, Audrey Fluke was one of five founding members of The Vegetarian Resource Group, which has grown to an organization of over 17,000 supporters. In her earlier years, Ms. Fluke had been active in the British vegetarian movement. Audrey was a nurse. It's no surprise that she chose this profession. She was an extremely caring individual, always offering words of support. Even when Audrey was going through adversity, she was cheerful and encouraging of others. In honor of Audrey Fluke, The Vegetarian Resource Group will give an annual award to a person who helped others become vegetarian through encouragement and a positive demeanor.

Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or fowl. Vegans are vegetarians who do not use other animal products such as dairy or eggs. For more information on vegetarianism, send your request with a self addressed stamped envelope to The Vegetarian Resource Group, P.O. Box 1463, Baltimore, MD 21203. Or visit www.vrg.org.

The Vegetarian Resource Group is a non-profit organization which educates the public about vegetarian and vegan diets. To obtain a sample copy of its bimonthly Vegetarian Journal, send $3.00 with your request to The Vegetarian Resource Group, P.O. Box 1463, Baltimore, MD 21203.
