09 07 2011 Peninsula Peace and Justice meeting minutes
Present: Bonnie, Carolyn, Steve, Ron, Peter
A press release is out and posters on their way to publicize a slide presentation by Lisa Sullivan and Ken Jones, of the School of the Americas Watch, on September 16 at Blue Hill Library, called ‘Honduras: Communities in Resistance.’
About 10 members of Island Peace and Justice and Peninsula Peace and Justice gathered at Dud Hendrick’s home on September 6 to plan the September 27 Bring Our War $$ Home concert, in which Voices for Peace and Rob Shetterly will collaborate, using songs, narrative, and paintings. Bruce Gagnon will also speak about BOW$$H, introduced by Dud. PPJ members are encouraged to appear at 6 pm that evening to help set up the event in Emlen Hall at the Bay School on South Street in Blue Hill; those who like may bring refreshments to share with people attending. Donations will be accepted to support BOW$$H, but no admission fee charged. Dud is doing the press release, Siri Beckman is preparing posters, and Judy and Peter are creating an informational program to distribute at the event. More information on events related to this one, across the state, can be found at bringourwardollarshome.org <http://bringourwardollarshome.org> .
To maintain the Memorial Field of Flags in Blue Hill, we plan to gather at 6 p.m. on Wednesday 9/21/11 to mow the perimeter and paths, pick up sticks, and generally check on things. Everyone is invited.
Steve will make sure There but for Fortune, a new documentary on the activism and music of Phil Ochs, is present at the Howard Room in the Blue Hill Library for showing at 7 on Friday, 9/26/11. Peter and Judy will prepare posters and press release.
We talked about options for film-focused events that may occur in coming months.
