While at the wonderful gathering and march for peace yesterday here in Portland it was announced that the peace community is going to form a circle 5 miles in circumference next Sunday, the 20th. Without further ado, I will just publish the information.
From Penny Kennedy, Families for Peace:
" Families for Peace is reaching out to other peace organizations, as well as to the educational and faith communities, to enlist
the participation of all who believe that a peaceful solution is preferable -- and possible. You'll join hands with 5,000 men, women,
and children and create the giant Circle For Peace -- a circle calling for A Better Way to Achieve and Keep World Peace.
PLEASE JOIN US. PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO YOUR ADDRESS BOOK! And certainly to your friends, families,
co-workers. Or let us do it for you. If you want hard copies to pass out or post, call Penny Kennedy, 503.274.2310. Time is short!
WHAT ELSE DO WE NEED?:
Special volunteers -- who arrive early, about 2:00 pm; pick up a pole with streamers on it, and stand in pre-marked spots along the
route. This will give a visual of the circle throughout the event (which will disperse no later than 4:00 pm). Also, give information
about what's to occur, and report any non-peaceful activities. Piece of cake! Call Nancy Kurkinen 503.227.0748 or Penny
Kennedy 503.274.2310. Thank you!
For members or friends of any Faith Community - You are needed to spread the word to other members, and also to pass out
flyers after services 10/12, 10/13, 10/19, 10/20. Very helpful if you can put information in bulletins or newsletters.
Donations to defray costs of printing and supplies for the event would be gratefully accepted. Checks payable to Families for
Peace. Send to N. Kurkinen, 242 SW Parkside Dr., Portland, OR 97205.
Bring signs, sing, amd above all, let's begin the peaceful way for generations to come."
