Seneca County Fair Project Peace booth in full swing!

This week at the Seneca County fair has been amazing with about 800 people coming to our Project Peace and Pax Christi booth.  I love meeting the people including policemen, Bill Reineke, some professors, people from out of town and lots of locals learning about our efforts to help Tiffin become more and more nonviolent, strong in its relationships.

Preparing now for Seneca County Fair

firecracker 2Yeah for robust and excited gatherings as will be gathering tomorrow night at Hedges and which will also gather at Seneca County Fairgrounds from July 24-30.  Every year that Project Peace and Pax Christi have had a booth there in the same space, it has been really fun to deal with all the kids and folks who stop to try to understand the way we are presenting the possibilities of a nonviolent life to them.  I LOVE IT!  Last year there were over 1100 people who somehow learned from our booth.

This year our theme will be “Light a Candle for Peace” in honor of Lindsay Kagy who recently passed away from cancer.  Lindsay supported the work of Project Peace so beautifully.  She was on our second last delegation to Palestine also.  She will be with us at the Fair I’m sure.

Please plan to stop on over at the Old Merchant Building…we’re about 100 feet in on the right aisle.  I’d love to be introduced to you.

Also if you’d like to volunteer a shift at the booth (3-4 hours) one day, that would be most helpful.  There are tips given to each volunteer to help the person know how to present what the display is to visitors.

much peace ALWAYS.
