Roots and Shoots Peace Fair

R & S
Peace Day Celebration
Bridgewater State College, MA Saturday September 22,
2:00-4:00 p.m.

(From Roots and Shoots New England)

The New England Youth Leadership Council is kicking off the New England Roots & Shoots Peace Through the Arts campaign with our 1st Annual Peace Day Celebration, to be held in the lovely ballroom of the Rondileau Campus Center of Bridgewater State College. We need help with the arts & crafts activity tables and registration table.

The youth leaders wish to raise $3,500 to support Roots & Shoots programs for Congolese youth living in the Lugufu Refugee camp in western Tanzania. The program has been successful in helping create sustainable living conditions, reducing the impact of refugees on the local environment and creating linkages among refugees and local Tanzanians.

Admission to the Peace Day Celebration is free, but your voluntary donation of $5 will be sent to Lugufu and will make you eligible for a drawing for lots of great prizes! Enjoy music, speakers, artwork submitted by 14 Roots & Shoots groups, art awards ceremony, drawing for prizes, project activities…and more! Stay tuned for details…
