As our club’s leader, I would be remiss in not acknowledging the global call for police accountability and what is happening in our community. We are all challenged with making the world a better place. 

The artist who designed this poster, Arnold Skolnick, did not realize that he was creating an iconic graphic that would become a part of our collective memory and mark a turning point in our culture.

Inspired by the collages of Henri Matisse, Skolnick designed Three Days of Peace and Music using impactful colors, cutting and assembling simple paper shapes. 

The dove and the guitar is the emblem of a generation that changed the world, when 50 years ago, they assembled for the Woodstock Music Festival to protest against oppression. 

There was only one rule; LOVE each other. The most important lesson learned was that when we come together in PEACE anything is possible.
