Member Appreciation Dinner 2016

2015 RPEC member dinner 003The Member Appreciation Dinner is your chance to come together with other members of the Peace Center to relax and look back on the accomplishments we’ve shared.

It’s our way of reminding you – if you volunteered, if you gave 5 bucks or 5,000, if you shared our emails or Facebook posts – that we can’t do this without you. Come celebrate our accomplishments and plan our future successes, with good food and great friends! The evening will include music and the presentation of Peacemaker of the Year award.
