Shetterly to Speak at Golden Rule Peace Boat Event
On Monday evening, June 26th, at 6:00pm members of the Maine peace community will be gathering at DiMillo’s on the Water restaurant to officially welcome the Golden Rule to Maine. The festivities will begin with a buffet dinner followed by brief remarks from the Golden Rule’s director, Helen Jaccard, as well as from crew members. We will also hear from renowned artist Rob Shetterly and local activists about the importance of the Veterans For Peace official “peace boat.”
In 1958, this 39 foot sailboat and its crew attempted to sail into the Marshall Islands to protest our government’s testing of nuclear weapons. In 2010, Veterans For Peace resurrected the boat and has been sailing it up and down both coasts, down the Mississippi River and over to Cuba ever since. Now it’s coming to Maine – the birthplace of Veterans For Peace.
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT; TICKETS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
