Give cheerfully and accept gratefully

“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” ~Maya Angelou

To you — the members, supporters and volunteers of the Peace Center,
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving – a perfect time for me to say thank you for the contributions of time, money and ideas you make each year to keep us going strong. There is much work for peacemakers – in our world, in our community, and I suspect, even at our own tables, so I am grateful that you have chosen to be part of our “peace community”.

Your membership dues, donations and store purchases continue to sustain us. This year we have chosen to stay open on Friday, November 29 so that you can have an fair trade option to Black Friday shopping — FAIR is the new Black on our block!! We will switch to holiday hours on Saturday the 30 — 10-7 Monday through Saturday, and 12-4 Sundays, and we’d love to see you! Also, mark your calendars and plan to join us next week for our open house and kid’s night (listed below)! In the midst of a very discouraging world, let us be grateful for the ways we inspire each other.

In gratitude for all you do in the name of peace,and all the ways you bring hope to me, to the Center and to the world, Betsy
