Alaska Peace Center Potluck & Movie Friday, Nov 29, 2013, 6:30 at APC office

Hello All Good Folks working to make more peaceful tomorrows!

The Peace Center is renewing its tradition of monthly potlucks.

Please join us this Friday, (last Friday of the month), November 29th, at 6:30 pm for a potluck gathering to share with other peaceful souls.

We will also show the short documentary “The Internationale” which shows the inspiring history, incredible international appeal and translation, controversy, and updated lyrics surrounding this song that spread like warm rays of the sun around the globe within a few short years, to be sung simultaneously and jointly in numerous languages.

This month we will share pot luck at our office in suite 203 of the College Mall, 3535 College Rd; upstairs from Fuji restaurant. If we are numerous enough to merit it, we may use a larger place in the future.

Peace, Heather Koponen, co-chair
