* Remarks from Rev. Dr. Katherine Ragsdale<http://eds.edu/faculty/katherineragsdale>, President and Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge;
* Music provided by the El Eco Trio with Guillermo Nojechowicz<http://www.myspace.com/elecomusic>; and
* An informal dinner starting at 4:00 with food provided by local restaurants.

This event is free and open to the public and is wheelchair accessible.
To help defray the costs of the event, the suggested donation is $10 for adults and $5 for children. To RSVP send an email to peace at cambridgema.gov<mailto:peace at cambridgema.gov> or make checks payable to "Cambridge Peace Commission" and mail to: Cambridge Peace Commission, 51 Inman St., Cambridge, MA 02139.

Since 1995, the Cambridge Peace Commission has honored individuals and groups in Cambridge who have worked for peace and justice. Out of more than 25 nominations received this year, the Peace Commission selected six individuals representing the breadth and depth of efforts for peace and justice in our city - from the local to the global - in families, schools, congregations, and neighborhoods.
