Concord Peace Vigil Returns from Winter Hiatus 3/29/2019
Since 1991, members of the Concord Peace Vigil have held a banner and walked in Monument Square around the flagpole. The banner says “We walk with all who suffer because of war.” We met one Friday a month from 8 to 9 am over the years 1991 through 2001. After the start of the US Government war in Afghanistan in late 2001, Vigil members decided to meet every week, weather permitting, still on Fridays from 8 to 9 am, and have continued to the present time. We are not a club and welcome any who wish to join us, even for a short time. We appreciate the positive messages many of you have signaled as you drive by.
For the second year in a row, the Concord Peace Vigil will be suspended during the winter months. 2021 will be our 30th year and we all are older (and wiser). For health and safety reasons we will stop at Thanksgiving. The last vigil of 2019 is November 22nd. We plan to resume once daylight savings returns, weather permitting. The hope is to restart March 20, 2020.
On December 6, 2019, our stalwart walker Ann Eno will turn 90. Isn't that something, she would say.
