Come hear the amazing history of the Golden Rule! Free presentation Friday, July 8, 2016, 3 - 5 pm at the Kenmore Public Library, 6531 NE 181st Kenmore 98028 (just a block north of 522 near Safeway).
In 1958 a crew of Quaker peace activists attempted to sail the Golden Rule to the Marshall Islands to interfere with US nuclear bomb testing. This bold, nonviolent, direct action inspired a worldwide movement leading to the Partial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty of 1963.
After five years of restoration by Veterans For Peace and many friends, the Golden Rule is once again sailing for a nuclear-free world and a peaceful, sustainable future!
Meet the crew and learn about the remarkable history and restoration of this historic wooden sail boat!
Event sponsored by Veterans For Peace Greater Seattle Chapter 92 Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action. For more information, call Kim Loftness at 206-349-4489, or Albert Penta at 360-793-2129.

The Golden Rule peace boat will dock at Log Boom Park Saturday, July 9th during the day, and give tours of the boat and take people sailing. At about 1 pm the Lake Forest Park For Peace group will walk to the park for a picnic.
The picnic and boat including tours and sailing is open to the public.
