2022 Peace Pilgrim Birthday Celebration Flyer

Friends of Peace Pilgrim (FOPP) invite you to join us in celebrating Peace Pilgrim’s birthday on Sunday, July 17, 2022 from 2-4 pm at Peace Pilgrim Park, London Ave. and Claudius St., Egg Harbor City, NJ.

 

The festivities will kick off with an optional one-mile peace walk leaving from the park at 2:15 pm, followed by a gathering in the park’s beautiful pine grove where participants will celebrate Peace Pilgrim through song, memories, and meditation. You are welcome to bring your singing voice and musical instruments.

 

Peace Pilgrim (July 18, 1908 – July 7, 1981) walked across the U.S. for 28 years on a personal pilgrimage for peace. She shared her simple but profound wisdom in thousands of communities: “Overcome evil with good, falsehood with truth, and hatred with love.”  Her words – captured in books, videos, and other media – continue to inspire people around the world.

 

“Peace Pilgrim’s message of peace seems more important today than ever, and we hope many people will join us in celebrating her life and wisdom,” said FOPP board member Barbara Reynolds. “We think it will be a beautiful gathering.”

 

The event will be held rain or shine. For more information, email Barbara Reynolds at  barbreynolds123@gmail.com or text 609-992-2294. You can learn more about Peace Pilgrim at www.peacepilgrim.org.
