CoFiA members participated in a wonderful celebration of the International Day of Peace on September 17 on the lawn of the United Methodist Church in Leonia. It was a beautiful afternoon, enriched by the presentation of stories of the lives of many people from around the world. Norm Smith spoke on behalf of CoFiA, Carolyn Sobering and other members set up a table with information about our organization, and Joselino Chocoj performed. Ellie Spiegel, a founder of CoFiA, has been a long-time member of the group that presents the IDP. It was a rewarding and uplifting afternoon–much needed in these difficult times.
