Jeannette Rankin Peace Center plans 30th anniversary party

The Jeannette Rankin Peace Center invites the community to help us celebrate our 30th anniversary Peace Party gathering. Our theme captures our history of “Shining a Spotlight on Peace”. We invite you to wear your favorite gala, peace attire and join us for this special party.

The event is planned for Sunday, Oct. 16.

Homestead Organics will offer a gourmet meal with help from local growers and businesses. Beer and wine is free this year in a special commemorative glass to help us celebrate. The Montana Women’s Chorus, Missoula Chapter is practicing songs to delight us and we are planning some fun entertainment for the whole family.

Our silent auction boasts a wide selection of goods and services reflecting our generous Missoula community, including a guided fly-fishing trip and lots more. And of course, you can bid on one of our traditional international dinners, featuring many great local cooks.

You can also win some great “Celebrate 30” prizes in our raffle, like $30 at the Good Food Store, $30 at Sushi Hanna or the Big Dipper, 30 pounds of dog food or 30 gallons of gas from Hellgate Conoco and more including a surprise raffle for 30 $5 dollar bills!
