Marchers brave the weather to advocate for peace in Newberg, the world
Members of the community march Saturday from Memorial Park to Francis Square, where a peace pole was installed, as part of International Peace Day.
Local participation in the event was an outgrowth of the Peace Village youth camp hosted by North Valley Friends Church last summer. The church partnered with groups like the Newberg Bahai, George Fox University, Newberg Rotary, Newberg School District, Kiwanis and the city of Newberg to create the Newberg Peace Coalition.
