In ancient Greece the original Olympic Games were preceded by a fifty day holy truce and it was followed by a 50 day truce. This was not only to allow competitors to travel in safety to Olympia but because the Games were regarded as a sacred event. This is an invitation to celebrate One Hundred Days of Peace to promote a culture of peace in our communities. We hope you can attend.
