Hot Springs - “Kindness Matters,” the community observance event in celebration of the International Day of Peace, will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 20 on the Hot Springs Creek Greenway at Orange Street near the Farmer’s Market Pavilion. Persons of all age, ethnic, civic, cultural and religious groups are encouraged to attend in mutual support of peace in the community. The Day of Peace is September 21.
The goal for the Day of Peace is to communicate peace throughout Garland County. Everyone is invited to make September 21 a day of personal freedom from crime, violence, verbal abuse, littering, traffic rage and acts of prejudice.
“R.E.G.A.R.D. believes that peace must begin with each individual. We hope that all citizens will participate in events in observance of the International Day of Peace, and personally resolve to dedicate themselves more fully to the cause of peace in our community, country and world,” said event organizers.
The community observance for a Day of Peace is co-sponsored by R.E.G.A.R.D. (Recognizing Everyone’s Gifts and Respecting Diversity) and the City of Hot Springs. For more information, call 655-0567.
