Women Walking Woodward For Peace May 12massage

(from press release, April 28, 2013)

Women Walking Woodward for Peace is a walk from Detroit to Ferndale in honor of pacifism.  Even organizers said “This is not an Anti-War march, we have signs and banners with a pro-peace message. Acoustic instruments are welcome. Our inspiration comes from Julia Ward Howe’s Mother’s Day proclamation, so come in peace and plan to have a very alternative Mother’s Day celebration, bring Mom! The event is family friendly.”

If we begin walking at 9am we can expect to be at Geary between 3-4PM

* You may also choose to come to Grand Circus Park directly at 8:30AM or get dropped off there but you will then need to arrange to be picked up in Ferndale or arrange a ride back downtown. The Detroit Bus Company trip is one way only. There is room for 42 on the bus, to confirm your seat, contact Anita and she will put you on the list.

We need volunteers:
Support Vehicle & driver (mini-van preferred) – This individual will transport our water, snacks & first aid supplies. You will go ahead of the walkers to make contact at each rest stop and loop back to pick up walkers who may need assistance.

People to hold the Pavilion at Geary Park – If you want to support the event but are unable to walk, this may be the job for you. You may do the entire day or share the time with others.JudyPalmer01

Someone to organize food at the end of the walk (solicit donations from Avalon Bakery, Garden Fresh Salsa, Natural food Patch, Western Market, etc.) Something simple but filling to recharge the walkers.
