On Sept. 24th a group of 20 members of Newaygo County People for Peace (NCPP) along with Women in Black joined the Harvest Parade in Fremont, MI. We handed out pens that said the Write Time for Peace as well as brochures with information about our group & inviting people to join us. Women in Black also gathers with our signs in neighboring cities every month on Second Saturdays.

NCPP sponsors over 50 events during our annual 30 Days of Peace, titled “Building a Culture of Peace and Nonviolence”. This includes a peace concert, events focusing on hunger in Guatemala and Newaygo County and will join in the annual Crop Walk. We offer Classes in World Religions for more understanding, Peace Story Times, Coloring pages, Peace Crane construction for children and info on recycling. Participants may join in Pedal of Peace Family Bike Ride, Mindful Peace Walks and Peace Blessing walk. Area Churches offer Taize Services, Prayer, Music and Meditation opportunities and Peace Gardens.
