Peace Feast Recap and Call for Volunteers for the Fair Booth

The 9th Annual Peace Feast on Saturday June 4th at Pioneer Park was a great opportunity for people to come together, relax in the summer sun, share ideas and interests, and find out about each other’s activities. As we emerge from all the restrictions of the covid pandemic it was great to have a meeting in each other’s presence. It was also nice that the weather was lovely! Our community is blessed with a multitude of small organizations working quietly to make all our lives better, and we heard short, insightful introductions to nine of them this year (see below for a list). Kudos to all the presenters and thanks to all who attended. We are always grateful for people’s support.

Coming up quickly is the Tanana Valley State Fair, which runs from July 29 through August 7. Our booth at the Fair is by far the largest opportunity of the year to interact with our community. Booth-sitters are needed, and we are very thankful for the people who have already volunteered. There are still 5 shifts (3 to 4 hours long) that need to be filled. All volunteers get a free day pass to the Fair. Check out the volunteer schedule and volunteer if you can! To volunteer please contact Maia Genaux at 907-388-0560 or at

Organizing the Peace Feast and maintaining a presence at events such as Earth Day, Arbor Day, the Tanana Valley Fair, and the Renewable Energy Fair requires a lot of organizing, a lot of help and enthusiasm from many people, and, yes, money. Maintaining a website, maintaining our obligations as a charitable entity in the State of Alaska, maintaining an office where we can keep things and organize from, publicizing our events, booth fees at the Fair, all require a certain amount of money. We greatly appreciate the people who have already responded financially to our recent newsletter. If you would like to make a donation you can send a check to Alaska Peace Center, 3535 College Road Suite 203, Fairbanks, AK 99709-3722 or donate through PayPal. We very much appreciate your support.
