SOUTH COUNTRY PEACE GROUP SPONSORS
THEIR 29th ANNUAL WORLD PEACE VIGIL
IN BELLPORT VILLAGE
Hiroshima Day, Saturday, August 6, 2011, will mark 66 Years since the atomic devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This year, as in the past 29 years, participants wearing traditional white for mourning will meet at 10:15AM on the sidewalk adjacent to the Woodland Cemetery located on Station Road, Bellport Village, south of Head of Neck Rd. They will mark the day with a silent, commemorative walk to Main St. where they will join the Women in Black. The walk will end at the Gazebo on Bellport Lane. A memorial program will be held there, including a homily by Rev. Tom Phillip, a talk by Paul Ames and music and singing led by guitarist Rick Sackett.
All who yearn for World Peace and an end to the threat of Nuclear annihilation are invited to joint the vigil. For more information call 631-714-4384.
