Peace Is Fun:

Ingleside at King Farm

-

To celebrate the commencement of their journey to Peace Certification by Mattie’s Foundation, IKF held a “Peace is Fun” picnic for their residents and the neighborhood King Farm community in Rockville, Maryland. The picnic was indeed fun, and included food and music (from Steven Gellman) and an opportunity to share “Peace Plan” ideas for their peace journey.

-

More than 100 IKF residents sang and chatted about  peace. They were joined by Board Directors and volunteers for Mattie’s Foundation, and by City of Rockville representatives and other neighbors.

-

IKF registered for Peace Certification by Mattie’s Foundation during July, 2013. Certification involves reflecting on some aspect of Mattie’s peace message and writings, responding to that message at a personal level, and then reaching out with peace in a way that impacts one other person or a entire community of people.
