Sept 13-22 Boone Celebrates International Day of Peace

Thanks to the local Mountain Peacemakers group and their area partners, Boone will have extended celebrations Sept 13-22, 2013 honoring the globally recognized September 21st International Day of Peace! Now through September 28th at the Jones House Cultural and Community Center is the “Visions of Peace” juried visual art exhibit inspired by the special day established by the United Nations in 1981. In addition, a wide variety of local peace-related events are scheduled from September 13th through the 22nd. All events are now included individually on HCUCC’s online calendar, and as lists in both of the articles referenced below, and here.
