Thanks to all who turned out for our visibilities on Thursday and Saturday. It looks likely that we will be rained out on Tuesday Otober 13th. But Thursday October 15th looks good. Please come join us at 2:00 at Pickering Corner. We have only a short time to go. Help us end with a strong showing. Mail ballots are pouring in. This election is under way. Our visibility may help people make up their minds.
Also: Congressman Chris Pappas will be in Wolfeboro on Tuesday. Come meet him at 5:15 at the Foss Field pavilion next to the playground.

Given the recent violence on Black and Brown bodies, many of us feel compelled to act. We cannot stand by while this injustice tears us apart. Please join us for a vigil this Friday, June 5th at 5pm at Pickering Corner in Wolfeboro (across from Carpenter School).
Please wear black, the color of mourning, along with masks. We will practice social distancing by standing 6ft apart from the person next to you. We will stretch the line down the sidewalk in both directions, toward town and toward the library. Please do not block driveways or streets.
We encourage you to bring a sign created on poster board or whatever you have. We ask that you consider writing the name of a Black person who like George Floyd, has died in white on black violence, with a hashtag underneath: #nojusticenopeace or #blacklivesmatter. Sadly, there is a list here of more than sixty.
We will stand peacefully (and socially distanced!!) on the sidewalk on Friday from 5:00-5:30. At 5:30 we will process to DeWolfe Field to stand 6ft apart in lines across the field. We will tilt the signs skyward so a drone can fly over and we can capture all the names and honor them, and we can keep the demonstration going on social media. Now is the time to make our collective voices heard!
