A Day Devoted to Strengthening the Ideals of Peace International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by resolution 36/37, the United Nations General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. Furthering the Day’s mission, the General Assembly voted unanimously in 2001 to adopt resolution 55/282 establishing 21 September as an annual day of non-violence and cease- fire. Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, sitting in silent meditation, or doing a good deed for someone you don’t know. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event. You can also share thoughts, messages and pictures to commemorate Peace Day on social media.

Or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org The Forkland Community Center was founded in 1971 when the Forkland School closed after operating for 43 years. People living in the Forkland community pledged money to buy the school buildings and incorporated the Community Center. Its aims are both to preserve and promote the rural heritage of our unique and scenic Knobs area, and also to provide a facility for many educational and recreational community activities. Over the years, we've maintained and improved the original two buildings (on the National Register of Historic Places), and we've also added a 1790s log cabin, concession stand, picnic shelter, and storage building. A county fire and rescue building, originally built by local people, is behind our main building. We have several special events open to the public during the year, including our Forkland Heritage Festival & Revue each October, one of the few true folk festivals in Kentucky. Other annual events include a Pie Supper in March, a High Tea in May, the Halloween Carnival, an elegant Christmas Dinner, and Twilight Christmas. The Forkland Lincoln Museum and Gift Shop are open regularly throughout the year. Forkland is well-known for its artists, and their works are displayed throughout the Community Center buildings.
Call 330-332-5512 for information and reservations. Andy will be doing a historical and irreverent remembrance in music of Will H Mullins - his great grandfather and mentor and Salem philanthropist from the Gilded Age.
