The words, “thank you” do not come close to expressing the emotion, the gratitude and the pride I feel as I look back to the generous contributions of time, energy, money, muscle, food, services, gifts and so much more that was given to us last Sunday to make our peace party a success. And it was a very wonderful success.
We had fun together, we raised money for a cause close to our hearts and we celebrated our successes and our connections. It was a perfect example of community building peace.
Many people do not know that the Peace Center relies entirely on the money we receive from the public to survive. And for 26 years, the public – our community – has come through for us, throughout the year in memberships and donations and especially at the peace party. Check out the list of donors and volunteers in the program – and make a point to thank them yourself! Thanks to all of you, we will forge ahead into the future to work alongside you in order to leave a better world to those who come behind us.
With much gratitude for each and every one of you,
