From the kick-off Peace Dinner to painting peace rocks with children at the Farmers Market, to being rained out of the Peace Meditation and Drumming Circle at Riverbottom Park and praying for peace at the Peace Pole in Ute Indian Park, members of the community enjoyed a full week of peace events. Dudley Case received the 2018 International Peace Award from the Western Colorado Friends of the Himalayas, co-sponsors of Peace Week. Lt. Col. Melvin Dunn, retired, also received a Peace and Humanitarian Medal. Dunn is a WWII veteran and he and his wife, Smiles, recently had our 33rrd peace pole installed in their back garden. The week ended with a showing of a National Geographic Documentary on the Outward Bound program, which helps veterans and young people regain a sense of their abilities through adventuring. One of the guides of the Outward Bound program who appeared in the film now lives in Montrose and often shares his climbing adventures.
