A peace rally will be held on the front lawn of Estacada City Hall Saturday, Sept. 23, at 1 p.m.

The Progressive Action Community Team is sponsoring the event, called the 'Estacada Peace Gathering.'

Peter Hamer will serve as the event master of ceremonies, and Kara Shufelt, a rural organization project coordinator, will be the featured guest speaker. Local yoga instructor Nina Bradford will lead meditation.

The purpose of the event is to 'join with the world in promoting peace, diplomacy and reason as alternatives to war.' Musicians interested in participating are encouraged to bring their instruments.
