The San Geronimo Valley Community Center Presents the 9th Annual Peace Festival
*Saturday, September 23, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
The San Geronimo Valley Community Center is hosting our 9th Annual Peace Fest at the San Geronimo Valley Community Presbyterian Church.
This free event, which happens in conjunction with the United Nations International Day of Peace on September 21, has historically offered participants an opportunity to reflect on what Peace means for them individually, as a community and world-wide.
The focus on this year’s event is The Treasures of Peace – The Rise of Global Peace Education. There will be a series of workshops, activities, art exhibitions and lectures intended to inspire and promote Peace. Stay tuned as more is confirmed!
