March For Peace In Janesville


Please join Rock Valley Fellowship of Reconciliation and Rock County Citizens for Peace to "March for Peace," in Janesville this coming Saturday, October 17, at 1 p.m.

Our theme is:

"No War is a good war!"

We will start the march from the parking lot outside Basics Cooperative, 1711 Lodge Drive, Janesville. That's the new Basics, not the old location from which we've started previous marches. A notice was mistakenly sent out through the mail that indicated we'd be starting from the old Woodman Road site, but that was incorrect. We'll gather at the current Basics lot on Lodge Drive, across from the Janesville Mall.

Bill Christofferson, co-chair of the Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice and a Vietnam veteran, will give us a "pep talk" to begin the afternoon's activities. We will march to the corner of Milton Avenue and Black Bridge Road. Rides will be available for those not able to make the walk. You can bring a chair if that would help. Dress for the weather; we will march rain or shine. We will be at the site with signs to send our message to passersby for about 40 minutes and then return to Basics for coffee and cheese and crackers in the store's indoor Community Room.

If you have questions, you can contact Sue Nelson of the Rock Valley Fellowship of Reconciliation at
