The following is a republished press release from community member Jim Murphy and NOT written by The Ithaca Voice … click here to submit community announcements directly to The Voice, or contact me at jalmendarez@ithacavoice.com.  
This is about remembrances of the costs of war… to our soldiers and families and to the innocents devastated by war, women, men and children.
We have started a tradition in Ithaca has been to create a PEACE MEMORIAL DAY gathering at DeWitt Park. As musicians and friends you are invited!
The program will be as follows:
  • AMAZING GRACE (instruments….some might sing along….kick off with cello and guitars…enter pipes…enter all)
  • Jim will do an intro and greeting
  • POEMS AND REMEMBRANCES by veterans or families (3)
  • SONG- SING ALONG- LAST NIGHT I HAD THE STRANGEST DREAM
  • Susan- introduction of song DEWEY CANYON LEGACY- Richie Holtz will perform it
  • POEMS AND REMEMBRANCES by veterans and families (however many remain)
  • SONG-SING ALONG- SIMPLE FAITH
  • SONG SING ALONG- THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND
Richie Holtz (who has done this many times) and George Mann will lead sing alongs. ALL MUSICIANS invited to play along.
This is the DOVE side of Memorial Day  🙂  A quiet moment of remembrance for all in war.
If weather permits, folks certainly welcome to hang out and jam afterwards.
TIME- 6PM  DEWITT PARK
Peace & Music
Susan & Jim
