This summer the Meeting hosted its first Vacation Peace School with great success. From August 7-11, we spent morning in the company of 10 energetic children, exploring peace through story, meditation, and song; pursuing creative projects; painting and erecting a peace pole; and enjoying one another’s company. The children participated in cooperative games both outside and inside, enjoyed dances from around the world, and brightened the sidewalks in front of the Meetinghouse with chalk drawings.
