Picnic for peace

The Capital Region Picnic for Peace will be Sunday, July 30, from 9:00 a.m. to dusk at Grafton State Park.
Join other Capital Region peace and justice activists in a day of relaxation, food and fun. We have reserved the Rabbit Run Pavilion for the day. Bring food and beverages to share and please label food to indicate whether it is vegetarian or not.

North East Peace and Justice Action Coalition will provide plates, cutlery , cups, ice and some beverages. This is a "carry in, carry out" so if folks can bring containers that they can take home and wash rather than anything disposable it would be environmentally friendly and clean up will be a lot easier. Bring your own wine or beer ( and plan to take home the containers). Bring music, live if possible. Sound system will be available after 12. Entertainment will include the Solidarity singers.

There will also be an open mike so bring poetry, announcements and stories to tell. Activities include: children's playground, row boats, canoes, kayaks, volley ball, horse shoes, hiking trails, and a beach for swimming.

Parking is $7 per car. Please car pool wherever possible. Plan to arrive by 10 AM if it is a beautiful day because Grafton allows a limited number of cars in the park at a time and if the parking areas are full, then cars have to wait to get in. Come early and stay for the day!

RSVP if possible to Wendy at 518-78-0071 , Trudy at: or Joe at 518-439 1968. If you are willing to go early for set up or stay till the end for clean up, please let us know and thanks. Sponsored by North East Peace and Justice Action Coalition (NEPAJAC) , Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace, Solidarity Committee, Peace Action, Veterans for Peace and other regional peace and justice organizations.
