1000 CRANES FOR PEACE----Hometown Holidays 2018

 

This year our community is especially mindful of the importance of actively working for peace in our world.

The origami crane is an international symbol of peace, and according to Japanese folklore, a collection of 1000 cranes is an auspicious number. All ages and abilities are invited to write a wish or prayer for peace on a crane that they color or fold themselves.

You can use this paper in your hand to color (see back) or cut and fold your crane (easy to find directions are online), OR you can come to one of our “fold zones” during Hometown Holidays:

Friday evening, November 30, 6:30-8:30pm at First Congregational Church while waiting for pictures with Santa

Saturday afternoon, December 1, from 12-3pm at First United Methodist Church while waiting to shop at the Material Girls’ Bazaar

COMPLETED CRANES CAN BE PLACED IN BOX AT

Chelsea Dist. LIBRARY (where the display of 1000 will be later in the month)
