WHS alumni reception 2pm Sat at library, hosted by the Weston Historical Society, is one event to look forward to tomorrow. The exhibit, chronicling 300 years of Weston history, is well worth a visit and will be at the library for a month before going on the road. However some of these precious artifacts will not be traveling. Another fun event tomorrow is the cocktail reception at the Town Hall from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Sam (Bush, class of 1972) and I plan to attend both events and look forward to seeing friends and neighbors as we celebrate our town's 300th birthday.

11am Sat, Sam and I will award the Weston Peace Prize to Inge Engler at the Flower Power Peace Pot at the corner of Church Street and Boston Post Road. Inge has stood for peace almost every Saturday for over a decade, rain or shine. Sometimes she is there entirely alone. I wouldn't be surprised if Inge refuses to accept her prize. She may just laugh us off, but it will be worth it. We've had some bright moments at the Flower Pot. Many have stood with Inge over the years and some, like Ken Fish and Brendan Maher, are on the other side now. Soon we shall be with them, you and I. Shall we stand for something worth standing for while we're here? Or just remain seated and reach for the remote?

Inge accepts the Weston Peace Prize, with gracious good humor. It is a T-shirt with John Lennon's art saying "Come Together," Which Yoko had been selling at show of his paintings and drawings called "Yoko Ono presents 'Imagine Peace' Celebrating John's Message of Peace and Love." Another bright moment at the Flower Power Peace Pot. Come join us some Saturday morning, from 11 to 11:30am. It is an island of sanity in a mad, mad, mad, mad world. Thanks, Inge, for keeping the peace vigil going all these years.
