Corvallis Peace Flotilla, August 4th

Please consider giving up an evening for the Peace Flotilla.

--------------------

As part of the Commemoration of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, a Peace Flotilla of canoes and kayaks will close the downtown ceremony.

This is a twilight event timed to be off the water at Michael's Landing
before dark.

As in previous years, the boats will be lit with Japanese-style lanterns.

The floating procession is intended to be a solemn experience, in keeping with
the theme of remembrance of the victims of the bombings.

If you are an experienced boater with an evening to spare in dedication to
peace, please contact Andi Stephens: Andi.Q.Stephens@gmail.com.

NOTE that we will be off the water before dark, even though it's more dramatic the darker it gets. I'm too old for drama!
