4th Annual Witness For Peace Memorial Day Concert

Monday, May 27, 2019 at 10:00am

Hygienic Art Gallery
79 Bank Street
New London, CT 06320

The fourth annual Witness For Peace Memorial Day Concert will be held at the Hygienic Art Galleries, New London.

This event gives witness in memory of war's fallen and wounded, and to the ever critical need for peace between all peoples. Performers will include: Hugh Birdsall, Rob Nelson, The Raging Grannies, and Kala Farnham. A donation of $10.00 is suggested: coffee and refreshments will be available at the cash bar.

At this year's concert, the ongoing crises in Syria will be remembered. In Syria, many common elements and impacts of conflict in our time are present, even including the lack of active awareness of the unrelenting struggles of Syria's people, and especially, the children. With witness comes the opportunity to directly effect in positive ways the fortunes of Syria's children: proceeds from this year's concert will benefit Save The Children's Syria relief efforts. Information on becoming a sponsor through this organization will also be available.

The Witness For Peace Memorial Day Concert began in recognition of the peace vigil which Cal Robertson has stood since 1985. His Witness has been joined over the years by many individuals and organizations, including Veterans For Peace, who with St. Francis House organize this event. Special recognition is extended to the Hygienic Art Galleries for hosting this year's concert.
