Buddhist Peace Walkers -- potluck tonight

Buddhist Peace Walkers to be Hosted at Meg Perry Center

Start: Mar 29 2010 - 6:00pm
Peace Walker

Members of the Nipponzan Myohoji Buddhist order and their supporters will be hosted at a potluck and discussion at the Meg Perry Center, 644 Congress Street, Portland, Maine on Monday evening, March 29, 2010.

The Buddhists and their supporters are taking part in a Peace Walk starting in Bath, Maine and eventually arriving in New York City for a session at the United Nations on the upcoming Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Nipponzan Myohoji Buddhists have been working for Nuclear Disarmament since the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. They have walked all over the world with their message of non-violence and world peace. They built a Peace Pagoda in Leverett, Massachusetts in the 1980s.

The potluck will begin at 6:00 p.m. followed by discussion. For more information and conformation that you are bringing a potluck dish of food, contact Wells Staley-Mays at 409-0778 or
