Interfaith Walk for Peace and Service starts Sunday

Interfaith Walk for Peace and Service is an annual
event organized with the collaboration of faith leaders
and the community throughout Pomona Valley
and the surrounding area. The event is sponsored by
the Claremont Interfaith Working Group for Mid-
East Peace.
The walk will begin on Sunday, September 9 at
the City of Knowledge on Garey Boulevard,
Pomona at 2 p.m. and will proceed to Temple Beth
Israel on Towne Avenue, Claremont. Participants
will then continue along Foothill to the Claremont
School of Theology/Claremont Lincoln University
campus just east of Indian Hill Boulevard. After a
short program at Kresge Chapel, the walk will conclude
at the adjacent Claremont United Methodist
Church (CUMC). The expected arrival time will be
approximately 4 p.m.
At CUMC, participants will be able to visit a community
fair featuring many of the area’s social and
community service agencies.
There will be special activities for kids as well as
live music provided by Rev. Dan Lewis of CUMC
and Cantor Paul Buch of Temple Beth Israel. There
will be a light communal meal at the end of the event
($5 donation is requested).
Parking will be available at the start and end stops
of the walk, and limited transportation will be available
at CUMC back to the City of Knowledge.
