Peace Events in Tri-Cities Tennessee

Thanks to DemocracyNow Tri-Cities for posting activities in the Tri-Cities area this month. Thanks especially for the note about our Creating A Culture of Peace workshops. This is what DNTC posted:

March 7-9 (Elizabethton): CREATING A CULTURE OF PEACE WORKSHOP (First Presbyterian Church). This workshop is already full, but two additional workshops have been added. The dates are April 4, 5 & 6 and April 18, 19, & 20. Information and registration forms can be found here. Registration is limited to 30 participants per workshop, so register now! By the way, these workshops cost about $1800 per weekend. If you are interested in being a sponsor, or in simply making a donation to help defray some of the costs of these great workshops, we encourage you to do so. Send your payments, sponsorship fees, or donations to: First Presbyterian Church, Creating a Culture of Peace, 119 West "F" Street, Elizabethton TN 37643.

This first workshop was awesome. That is what I heard from the participants. Since it was full, I am going to take the training April 4-6. Thanks to DNTC for mentioning in the cost. Yes, it is about $1800 per weekend that needs to be underwritten by sponsors. We had asked sponsors for $100, but that was when we thought we were going to have just one weekend!

Now, with three scheduled (at the incredibly reasonable rate of $30 per person) we could use some financial help. So, if you would like to be added to our sponsor list for a gift of $100 or more please let me know by e-mailing
