We extend a warm invitation to our members and guests to attend our virtual Annual Meeting Sunday, March 7, from 2 to 4 p.m. (See the zoom link below.)

The theme will be “Marching on to Freedom Land,” referring to the Civil Rights Movement freedom song also called “Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Round.” Sunny Hamrick, with guitar, will lead us so we “keep on a-walkin’, keep on a-talkin’” and we’ll also sing  “Peace Train.” A highlight this year will be the first-ever Peace Jeopardy game. Rumors have it that prizes will be won.

Physicians for Social Responsibility project director and PeaceWorks-KC Board member Ann Suellentrop will update us on the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Dave Pack, Board treasurer and a numbers wizard, will deliver the financial State of PeaceWorks report. Henry Stoever, a Board co-chair, will zero in on recent issues and events.

Projections for PeaceWorks-KC will feature a 2022 Walk/Bike for Peace from Wichita to Kansas City, Mo.

Annual Meeting participants will vote on candidates for these positions: Board co-chairs—Sunny Jordan Hamrick, Cris Mann, Henry Stoever; Board vice chair—Mary Hladky; Board secretary—Spencer Graves; Board treasurer—Dave Pack. Officers hold one-year terms, and directors hold two-year terms. On the slate for a repeat two-year term are Ann Suellentrop and Leigh Woody.  New director candidates are Itto Outini and Teresa Von Hagel. Candidates for the Nominating Committee are Mary Hladky, Charles Carney, and Cris Mann. More candidates may be added before and during the Annual Meeting. Call Henry Stoever at 913-375-0045 if you are interested in serving as a PeaceWorks Board member!

Get on board the Peace Train!
