Lake Forest Park for Peace members will celebrate their 15-year anniversary on Saturday, December 9 in the Stadler Meeting Room at the Lake Forest Park Town Center from noon to 2pm. All are welcome.

Lake Forest Park for Peace was formed on December 14, 2002 in opposition to the ongoing war in Afghanistan and the upcoming Iraq War. Members have publicly demonstrated for peace on over 750 consecutive Saturdays as well as demonstrating at hundreds of other events.

Members held a candlelight vigil for peace on the evening of March 20, 2003 when a driver stopped to inform them that the U.S. had just started its bombing campaign for the invasion of Iraq.

John Makey, who has attended the Lake Forest Park vigil since it first began, stated, “We represent a living democracy-- placing ourselves and our demands for a peaceful society into the public arena.”

Peace activists meet weekly each Saturday in the Stadler Meeting Room from 10am to 11am, and vigil for peace at the street corner of Bothell Way NE (SR 522) and Ballinger Way NE (SR 104) from 11am to noon.

Members will also be celebrating the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to ICAN, which will be awarded hours later in Norway on December 10.
