People for Peace, Justice, and Healing
February 15, 2014
People for Peace, Justice, and Healing met on Saturday, February 15, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. at the Antique Sandwich Company in Ruston. Present for check-in were Sallie, Sol, Mark, Colleen, Sheila, and Karen K.
1. EVENT DEBRIEF (Sallie)
Consensus: last Saturday's event was a success that brought out 160 people despite the worst snowstorm of the year hitting at the worst possible time. A few glitches — mostly due to extraneous factors. Sallie has written to the Washington State History Museum to raise a number of issues.
1. SISTER CITY FILM FESTIVAL (Mark)
On Thurs., Feb. 20, the International Sister Cities Film Festival will continue with its French offering, "Avenue Montaigne" ["Fauteuils d'orchestre"] in the Tahoma Room in Commencement Hall on the campus of the University of Puget Sound. This event is free and open to the public. A cultural program begins at 6:00 p.m. and the film begins at 7:00 p.m.
2. SOUP WITH SALLIE (Colleen)
