Saturday a day to celebrate

Promotion of the upcoming international day of peace

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

International Day of Peace is just around the corner. On Sept. 21, thousands will gather around the world to state clearly that we are working together as one family to say that Peaceful Living is the common quest, need and desire of the world’s people. This peace does not involve military interventions, attacks, or occupations; nor does in involve abuse or violence by anyone to anyone.

The Boundary Peace Initiative, along with our co-sponsors the USCC working groups and the Kootenay Region Branch of the United Nations Association in Canada (KRUNA), ask you to join us on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 2 pm in Grand Forks, B.C at the Slavonic Senior Citizens Center on 72nd Ave and 7th Street for a program with the theme- -Defining Peace and Exploring How to Live It. Admission for this event is by donation to cover cost of rent. Also, the Slavonic Seniors hold their monthly vegetarian potluck that day and they are inviting all to come share time and food together by either bringing a vegetarian dish or contributing $6.

Later on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 6 p.m. in Castlegar at the Mir Center for Peace on the campus of Selkirk College there will also be a gathering.

We look forward to seeing you and ask that you spread the word to all your family and friends to join us either in Grand Forks or Castlegar for these planned events or you can take the initiative and organize a gathering in your community. This gathering can be big or small; the idea is to join our voices calling for a cessation of war and violence.

Peace lives because we live it.

In Universal Kinship and Loving Peace,

Laura Savinkoff,

Grand Forks
