The Unitarian Universalist Church of Kent is pleased to welcome Gold Star Mother and peace mom Cindy Sheehan and the Tour de Peace to our church on Thursday, June 13th at 7PM.

All area residents are invited to a presentation by and discussion with the Tour de Peace at the UU Church of Kent, 228 Gougler Avenue. Snacks and beverages will be served.
