January 2023: Issue # 230 Boundary Peace Initiative Newsletter.

2023 has arrived and so has the Boundary Peace Initiative Newsletter.  Wow issue 230!  This time travel with us to COP27 in Egypt and the Say No to the F-35s Fighter Jets for Canada and finish reading about the International Day of Peace in Grand Forks.  There is so much more that we’d like to share with you but then the number of pages would have to grow. 

Remember, we offer this information for free but we do pay for printing and we do need to pay for the Website in order to spread the word further afield.  We know it is kind of tight these days and after the flurry of requests in December you may be tapped out.  We are just reminding you that we gratefully accept donations at any time, in any amount. 

We will begin planning for events in the coming months and will let you know the details as they emerge, so keep your ears and eyes peeled for announcements. 

Thank you for your ongoing support as we step into another year riddled with anguish and pain, abuse and violence but not lacking in hope and promise for a better world if we walk together in love and compassion and kindness. 

December Issue Ready

December 2022 are arrived with the glittering lights and decorations to mark the holidays ahead.  As we gather to celebrate remember to honour those around you and those who went before you but most of all honour our future generations.  How?  Well, find ways to work for a world of peace and socio-economic justice and environmental sustainability.  The BPI strives to learn from and cooperate with all the groups we work with as well as all our supporters to move forward into 2023.  We do depend on you to help offset our operating costs, which truly are minimal, but there are expenses so we gratefully accept donations; contact Laura to make arrangements.  We thank you in advance for your help.

The last issue of 2022 is now up on our website and ready for you to read and share with friends, family and neighbours.  In the Boundary we distribute hard copy in Grand Forks, Greenwood, Rock Creek, Midway and Christina Lake.

Thank you for your ongoing support and interest in our work.  Together we will enter 2023 full of hope for a better, more peaceful, loving world

Finally at the end of October and in time for our November issue, in our area, the leaves have burst forth in their fall colours and the thirsty ground is getting something to drink and soak up.  And with this issue we begin to distribute hard copy in the Boundary area of B.C. The Newsletter is free but we certainly will welcome donations to help cover the cost of printing and other BPI expenses (which aren’t many but as we gear up for more events the cost also gears up).  If you wish to donate contact Laura at l4peace@telus.net or call Laura at 250-444-0524 or 250-442-0434 on how to do that or go to our website and the mailing address is under the Donations heading.

This issue focuses on the White Poppy campaign in which we have participated for over 20 years and encourage you to go to the outlets in Grand Forks (New West Trading and Jogga’s) to pick one or two or three up to share with family and friends.  And in this issue we also begin the report on the conference we hosted for International Day of Peace with the theme End Racism! Build Peace!
