**Paraders for Peace will be marching in the Old Hallowell Day Parade on July 19.**
The Augusta Women in Black invite Maine Peace and Justice advocates to join them in the Old Hallowell Day Parade on Saturday, July 19. Paraders for Peace will gather at 9:30 am in the parking lot on the north side of the railroad overpass at the north end of the Hallowell business district. The parade begins at 10:00 am and is just over 1/2 mile long, taking about 20 to 30 minutes to walk. Paraders are encouraged to bring banners and posters.

A few years ago, the Winslow 4th of July parade committee refused the Waterville-Winslow Bridges for Peace request for a float. The Augusta Women in Black, which had marched in previous Hallowell parades, invited the Waterville-Winslow group to join them in the parade, and in turn, Hallowell parade officials extended the invitation with a “Everyone marches in Hallowell”.
**Jamilla El-Shafei emailed me the following request.**
The CODE PINK "McCain stalker" has informed me that John McCain has moved up his scheduled visit to Kennebunkport to Monday July 21st. We are changing plans accordingly.
