Day of Peace Community Event

The Highground will recognize the International Day of Peace with the second annual “open community” event on Tuesday, September 21.

The event will start at noon with a minute of silence by The Highground Liberty Bell; rain or shine. All are invited to attend as poetry and messages of peace will be read and songs will be performed. Singers Pam Smith and Kathy Burnett will be there and The Highground Peace Pole will be dedicated. Origami cranes that groups and individuals have been creating and donating to The Highground will also be on display at the Dove (weather permitting} or at the Museum.

There are many ways that people can participate in this event. Origami cranes can continue to be created for The Highground using 6” origami or craft paper (cranes will continue to be collected after this event in preparation for a 1,000 crane display in December of 2021); individuals are welcome to recite their poetry and written works of peace; and, musicians are invited to perform appropriate songs. A very special part of the creation of the Dove was the inclusion of soil from many different places. Attendees are encouraged to bring soil with them from their homes and other places close to their hearts to be integrated into the Dove Mound.

An important note about this event: This is not a political platform, therefore, political views and discussions are not welcome. The focus will be to promote healing and fellowship for all Veterans and non-Veterans and to share in voicing the common goal of peace.

The Highground Museum is located at W7031 Ridge Road in Neillsville Wisconsin. If you would like to read or perform at the event or have any questions, please email Theresa at museum@thehighground.us or call 715-743-4224.
