38th Annual Holiday Peace Vigil (doc)
SATURDAY DECEMBER 21, 12 noon to 1 p.m. Along West 4th Avenue at Percival Landing, Olympia
The public is invited to participate in Olympia's 38th Annual Holiday Peace Vigil on Saturday December 21 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. along West Fourth Avenue, along the south side of Percival Landing and in front of Heritage Fountain.
The annual vigil is an Olympia tradition. Signs are provided, but participants may bring their own. Children are welcome. Members of the Artesian Rumble Arkestra will perform. Participants may enjoy free refreshments nearby after the vigil.
“During this holiday season of joy and good will, let us set aside all violence and militarism, which are the opposites of joy and good will,” said Glen Anderson, vigil organizer. “The vigil gives participants and passersby an opportunity to pause and consider choosing peace instead of violence. Peace is so much more consistent with the holiday spirit.”
The vigil is sponsored by the Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR). The Olympia FOR has worked nonviolently since 1976 on a variety of peace and social justice issues. It is the local affiliate of a very broadly interfaith, international pacifist organization founded in 1914.
The Olympia FOR has also sponsored a weekly peace vigil in Sylvester Park at the corner of Legion and Capitol Way, from 12 noon to 1 p.m. every Wednesday since March 5, 1980, and another vigil at the south end of Percival Landing from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. every Friday since November 1998.
The vigil is free, but the Olympia FOR will gratefully accept donations to support its persistent work for nonviolence, social justice and peace.
