“A community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm.” ~Henrik Ibsen
Each fall, we gather together in community at our Peace Party. It is our one big event to raise money for our peace programs. But even more memorable is our connections with each other as we celebrate our work and renew ourselves for the journey ahead. Each year, we try to incorporate changes you recommend and try new things mixed in with our traditions so it remains one of the most enjoyable parties in Missoula. Have you ever wanted to see a certain element at the party? Have you ever thought of a way to do something better? Do you have skills you’d like to use in service to peace? Well then, we are looking for you. Planning is underway for this year’s party in October. We have a few new faces on the committee and we are hoping to get some more new energy and ideas. Call us at 543-3955 and be part of our team. Or better yet, show up for our first meeting next Thursday, July 19 at 4 pm at JRPC to get started. I can’t wait to experience what we come up with!
