Some important updates on the May 2nd Walk for a Just Peace in Israel and
Palestine, See you at noon on Sunday!
(1) Folksinger Pat Humphries will help us kick off the Walk! She'll sing
right before the step-off from Scoville Park. (See below for more
information about Pat.)
(2) The National Weather Service is NOT predicting rain for Sunday in its
latest forecast. (The high temp is predicted to be 54
degrees--jacket!) But, IF there is rain at the time of the Walk, we will
flip our schedule and do the buffet at the church FIRST and walk
LATER. The show goes on in any case! Come to Scoville Park at noon and
you'll be directed to the church if it happens to be raining.
