30th Annual Mother’s Day Walk
Meet at the Oroville/Osoyoos International Border to share truths, songs and messages of Peace and Justice from 2-4 p.m. at this annual event. U.S. walkers leave the Oroville Library at noon for the 2 hour, 4.5 mile walk up the west shoulder of North Highway 97 to the border ceremony, carrying banners, placards and prayers for peace. We will fly peace doves and rainbow streamers, walking with strollers, buggies, red wagons and people of all ages. If you are a U.S. participant and can’t walk to the border, you can park at Super Duper/Texaco’s south parking lot or in the 6-8 spaces at U.S. port of entry. Canadian peace makers, including a large contingent from the Doukhobor communities of western Canada will walk from Haynes Point Park 1.5 miles north of the border, or arrive by bus at the border.
