Year of Peace booth at Fall Fest offers peaceful treats
In what has now become an annual tradition, the Concordia Year of Peace Committee filled its Fall Fest booth Saturday with an array of items — including small candy bars marked as “A Little Piece of the Peace” — designed to remind the community of its continuing efforts.
The committee was also asking people to fill about a simple anonymous survey about their top concerns relating to peace and nonviolence.
Throughout the day, committee members handed out Year of Peace buttons, stickers and signs, and sold “Another Year of Peace” shirts.
The Concordia Year of Peace efforts were launched at Fall Fest two years ago, and then were re-dedicated as Another Year of Peace beginning in January 2011. The committee continues to plan projects that emphasize peace, nonviolence and public civility.
