    Please consider attending the
  Veterans For Peace Fundraiser  Johnny D's, 17 Holland Street, Davis  
Square, Somerville  Wednesday, December 4th 6pm-11pm
  It will be a fun time, two great bands;    "Willie Sordillo Jazz  
Ensemble"                          and       "Public  
      /Be sure to wear your dancing shoes/ /
We at Veterans For Peace work for peace on earth not just during the holiday  
season but also year round. Yet it’s only once a year that we reach out to  
our friends and community to ask for your support. (We don’t get after you  
once a month, or even once a week, as some organizations do.)  We’re  
having a fundraiser at Johnny D’s in Somerville on December 4th where  
there will be great food and entertainment, a raffle with wonderful prizes  
donated by businesses all around Boston and some serious boogying by VFPers  
and friends, young and old.  Please check out the enclosed flyer. We’d  
love to have you join us Dec. 4 at Johnny D’s where the cover charge is  
only $15.00 and the whole evening is a lot of fun.  *If for whatever reason  
you can’t make it that night, we would very much appreciate for you to  
consider a donation to Veterans For Peace in whatever amount you can afford,  
in support of our work and mission.*   In case you’re not totally familiar  
with what we do here’s a rundown.  First off, our mission:  “Veterans  
for Peace, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational and humanitarian  
organization dedicated to the abolishment of war.”  During the past year  
our members have worked hard to stop drone warfare, prevent the bombing of  
Syria, support Chelsea Manning and block the KXL pipeline. We conduct a  
Memorial Day event on the Boston waterfront. We march in several parades  
including on Armistice/Veterans Day. We periodically serve meals at the New  
England Center for Homeless Vets.  We support an orphanage in Vietnam and a  
water project in Iraq.  We do extensive work with Iraqi refugees here in the  
Boston area. And for the past three years we’ve organized a St. Patrick’s  
Day Peace Parade in South Boston that’s all inclusive because the Allied  
War Veterans Council won’t permit organizations like us who have  
“peace” in their name, or LGBT organizations or others they deem  
inappropriate to march in their parade.   In sum, we know we’re doing  
important work in the cause of peace.  We hope you agree and we hope  
you’ll support us either by your presence at our annual Johnny D’s  
fundraiser or with a check if you can’t come.  *You can send donations,  
made out to Veterans For Peace to: P.O. Box 1604, Andover, MA 01810* Thank  
you very much.   *Veterans for Peace, Chapter 9, Smedley D. Butler Brigade*
