U. N. Peace Day Event at Butte College

The Peace Panel Project took part in the UN Peace Day Event at Butte College in Oroville California Sept., 19, 2012.  It was our largest exhibit yet, including thirteen easels, 36 - 2' x4' panels, and 9 - 9" x 18" mini panels on and around the cart that was elevated on 18" legs.  We had 2 tables and thanks to Chuck Greenwood, Courtnie Burns, Charles Withuhn, we were well staffed to answer questions and talk with students about the issues of Nonviolent Communication, Ruses for War, Better World Shopping, Project Censored and Counter Recruitment.  We were well received and got to meet many students.  It was a good day.  We handed out a lot brochures, flyers, peace buttons, cookies and cupcakes; sold a few books and had some great discussions. Thomas Billheimer III, a reporter for the Roadrunner, the school newspaper came by and interviewed us for an article.
