Souper Sunday December 11th March to Reclaim Bike Path Signs!


This idea just in from No Place for Hate Harwich committee Cathy Comeau, and her Harwich High School daughter, Jesse Comeau. Our committee is open to all who share our commitment to non-violent social change. Call (508) 432-9256 or (508) 432-4988 for more information.

On Sunday, November 27 a Nazi Swastika was sprayed on the bike crossing sign on Route 39 in Harwich Center. On this coming Sunday December, 11th, at 1:00 PM we will gather at the Harwich Community Center and walk / march silently to the site of the bike crossingĂ‚’s road sign defacement, exactly two weeks to the day it was noticed and reported by Harwich Town Planner, Sue Leven.

We invite towns people, clergy, town officials, and or whomever wishes to join us.

Our program will include the reading aloud of the UN Declaration of Human Rights affirming, that Harwich is No Place for Hate! Followed by a moment of silence to reflect on this season of peace.

We would like to celebrate our town's diversity.

Return to the Harwich Community Center for hot soup from borscht to zucchini.

We also are asking folks to bring cans of soup for the Harwich Food Pantry so that this activity will be positive response to the negative display of hate. If this is something folks want to do please support this by telling others in your neighborhood. The No Place for Hate Harwich committee is open to all who share a commitment to non-violent social change. Please join us!
