CNV Salsbury,MD 2015 (3)Organizers from various faith and community action groups in Salisbury Maryland held their 7th annual, local observance of the UN International Day of Peace during the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions at an event called “Peace In The Park”.

The celebration featured the installation of a Peace Pole with a message of peace in eight languages. It was dedicated by Mayor Jim Ireton who was introduced by Harvey Zendt, area representative of the international Mayors for peace, working for a nuclear free world by 2020. Harvey spoke about this effort. They were pleased to have more diversity this year, in the form of youth and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore Jazz Band (They’re terrific!). They also had many children’s activities, including origami peace crane-making, a peace-themed children’s art exhibit, live music, drumming, dance and more.CNV Salsbury,MD 2015 (2)

There were attractive signs with peace quotes leading up to their location, under trees by a stream. Information tables representing churches and community peace/mediation groups, with children’s arts and crafts peace activities circled the performance area. They also had fabulous steel drums, followed by a wonderful troubadour singing favorite peace songs.
