Memorial Day: Veterans for Peace

Portland's Peace Community has a new home!

The Portland Peace Memorial Park has been created in memory of all who have suffered from war. Veterans for Peace and Brad Perkins invite the Peace Community of Portland to help dedicate this site in memory, in peace, in hope, and in celebration.

Join us at Memorial Coliseum at noon on Memorial Day -- the World War II memorial near the main entrance. Taps will be played at 12:30, and then we'll walk together from the war memorial to the peace memorial, only a few blocks away at the intersection of NE Interstate & NE Oregon for the dedication with musicians and Portland dignitaries.

Bring your families, your friends, neighbors and acquaintances!
