"Thinking back to the day we opened our doors in 2010, it's remarkable to count all the ways we have grown in just 2 years. It's not just the success of our Living Peace Series and the incredible global leaders we've been able to welcome; but the actual mobilization we've seen of local individuals committed to living peace here every day. We now have over 600 individuals participating in programs each month and 20 program affiliates who share their programs at Center for Living Peace each month. It really shows that on all levels—with individuals, families and organizations—there is a strong desire in our community for a sense of connection, and an eagerness to build peace in our daily lives," said Executive Director, Rebecca Hendrickson. "We hope that people will come join us for a fun-filled day (and free cupcakes) as we celebrate two wonderful years of making Good Happen!"
