The colorful paper cranes made their appearance again this year. Many thanks to Judith Maier - "The Crane Lady" - seen in the photo by John Palmes - for organizing paper crane folding parties, and to all of you who joined us this year.
We were pleased to be part of the Veterans For Peace parade entry, following behind the inspired "float" that carried "Lady Liberty in the Chains of War, Fear, Lies and Torture" (in the person of Donna Anderson) and "Unchain Our Freedom - Stop the War".
Our regular weekly meetings will resume Tuesday, August 7th at 5:15 pm at Northern Light United Church, 400 W. 11th Street1th Street.
