Before we headed out to DC many of you participated in the Relay for Peace. This was a wonderful
effort and about 50 people turned out from Lansing for the visits to Congressional Offices.
Our lead runners - Ken, Jen and Erik - ran all the way (at least 5 miles and we had a good program and
presentation at each office (Jack, Ann, Judith) and a drumming brigade at the corner of Abbott and
Grand River. Thanks to Everyone who worked on and supported this effort.
