On a stunningly beautiful fall day in November, the Peace in Connecticut Coalition met to continue the progress towards the grand opening of the Peace Center of Connecticut in 2017.
Greetings to you all from the Peace center Team. We have made great strides towards incorporation of the Peace Center and have, with the assistance of CIL who have provided us with counsel to assist us in the application process, filed for incorporation.
We are excited that the work of the past 8 months is starting to produce some tangible results. This is a milestone we all dreamed of and thanks to your guidance and support it is nearing it's projected outcome.
If one milestone was not enough to bring about excitement this is most certainly the icing on the cake. The Peace Center of Connecticut will have a home. A physical space to allow for planning meetings, sending of correspondence, as well as a community space to gather.
CIL has opened up it's doors at 157 Charter Oak Avenue in Hartford CT and it represents their continued commitment to seeing the development of a Peace Center.
This day also marked the first board meeting. Although this team has been meeting as an executive committee throughout the process, with the filing of incorporation papers, they have become a board, with the titles and responsibilities that come with that designation. Thank you to our newly official Board of Directors.
Our website has gone public and even made it's way to social media prompting others to call members of the planning committee to congratulate them and stating they are looking forward the opening. Other calls or messages have come in from folks looking to be board members in the future. The excitement continues to build for this physical space.
Many of you who were at the October 13, 2016 Peace Center launch party may have picked up our pamphlet and business cards with our initial logo. Well now we are launching a contest for youth to design the official Peace Center of Connecticut logo. This is our way of connecting with the young people of Hartford CT and to bring them in tothis accomplishment.
In the coming weeks look for updates on our incorporation status, steps to identifying board members, the logo contest, non-profit 501c3 status updates and meetings at the 157 Charter Oak Avenue space.
To inquire about how to get involved please leave us a comment here and contact information where you can be reached. We are excited to keep you informed and thankful for your support.
Peace is Possible!
