Olympia FOR's 34th Annual Holiday Peace Vigil

The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation invites the public to participate in the 34th Annual Holiday Peace Vigil on Saturday Dec. 19 from 12:00 1:00 pm along both sides of West Fourth Avenue, along the south side of Percival Landing and also in front of Heritage Fountain.

During this holiday season of joy and good will, FOR encourages people to set aside all violence and militarism. The vigil gives participants and passersby an opportunity to pause and consider choosing peace instead of violence. Peace is so much more consistent with the holiday spirit. FOR provides many signs and also invites participants to bring their own. Some families make this a regular part of their holiday tradition.

The Olympia FOR also has also sponsored a weekly peace vigil in Sylvester Park at the corner of Legion and Capitol Way, from 12:00 1:00 pm every Wednesday since March 5, 1980, and another vigil at the south end of Percival Landing from 4:30 6:00 pm. every Friday since November 1998.

The vigil is free, but the Olympia FOR will gratefully accept donations to support the Olympia FOR's persistent work for nonviolence, social justice and peace. For more information contact (360) 491-9093 or mailto:info@olyfor.org
