Peace Day in Kaua’i, HI

Aloha and mahalo to the many folks who made the International Day of Peace celebration a wonderful success!

While we had a tally of about 100 people at the welcome table, The Garden Island News estimated closer to 200.

Joyful Noise kicked off our program with their powerful performance. Aunty Hana blessed us with her Pule. The song of peace and address by Mayor Carvalho (with his good-natured handling of the sometimes on, sometimes off microphone!) led us into a time of community singing and the release of the peace doves by our keiki.

The open mic brought uplifting music to all while the activities at the many tables took place and an abundance of food was served. Closing the festivities, we joined together for a community dance for peace and prayers at the peace pole and prayer flags.

This event took a lot of hard work and commitment on the part of the planning team, led this year by Annaleah Atkinson and Jeffrey Pears. An amazing team of volunteers came forward and assisted in the planning, implementation and cleanup. Truly, it was an inspiring demonstration of service to the community.

May the blessing of peace remain with us all and with our community.
