COMMUNITY CELEBRATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE Saturday, SEPT. 21
Submitted by Jane B McWilliams on Tue, 09/17/2013 - 9:05am
Marie Vogl Gery and Judith Stoutland, organizers of the event, invite all to the 11th Northfield Community Celebration of the International Day of Peace in Bridge Square on Saturday, Sept. 21.
“Education for Peace” is the theme for this year. It grows out of concern for the UN Second Millennium Development Goal which promises basic education for every girl and boy on the planet. Progress in achieving this goal revealed a widening circle of advantages in the cultures where this had happened. War and recession have stopped and reversed many benefits.
The theme also offers opportunities to learn about making, retaining, and renewing peace. We will hear about the work of local peacemakers and groups. There will be information and encouragement for the work.
We will have music beginning at 1:30 and a program from 2-4 p.m.
The format will be much the same as earlier celebrations: music, readings, and statements by various peaemakers at our traditional Open Mike.
Susannah Ciernia and Bill McGrath will provide music, including some with audience participation. Misty Rowan, Twin Cities poet and spoken-word artist will participate.
We hope you can join us!
