On Saturday, September 25, Cannon Valley Friends invite neighbors and visitors to celebrate International Day of Peace outdoors at the Quaker meetinghouse at 512 Washington Street from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. Masks are encouraged.
Live acoustic music will be provided by Mike Braucher and Jake Morton. Guests can enjoy family-friendly activities along with lemonade and cookies, and share ideas about peacemaking. The Northfield Human Rights Commission will share information about local peace-building work.
International Day of Peace is officially September 21. The day was first celebrated in 1982, and represents the efforts of the United Nations and of individual peace-builders to create the world we want to live in.
