International Day of  PEACE

we celebrated Peace Day on the Saturday preceding the actual event since it would be Monday at noon.  There was a Peace March led by VFP from the YMCA on 34th Street to the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship 0.7 of a mile South.  The march was followed by a flag ceremony at noon in the Memorial Garden in the woods at the UU Fellowship.  The Day was rounded off with a vegetarian pot luck in the Fellowship Hall with participants in the Pachamamma Symposium on sustainablility that was held in the afternoon.
