Please join us for our annual celebration at noon on Sept. 21. We will be in a different location this year due to city hall outdoor renovations, north of 103A Avenue where the Community Flag Pole has been relocated to the Homeless Memorial Park. The United Nations set aside September 21st each year to remind the world of its commitment to working for world peace. In these turbulent times, it is more important than ever for all of us to continue to imagine a world without war.

The principles and purposes of the United Nations involve a passionate commitment to ensuring that the human race progresses toward a firm realization of fundamental rights of freedom based on peace and security in their lives, and of all future generations.

The program will include music, reflections, and short talks.
