Peace speaker slated for Monday

Helen Jaccard of Veterans For Peace will be the guest speaker of the Rotary Club of Kahului when it meets from noon to 1 p.m. Monday at Tante’s Island Cuisine.

Jaccard will talk about Veterans For Peace’s Golden Rule Project.

In 1958, four Quakers sailed Golden Rule, a small ketch, from Los Angeles toward the Marshall Islands Pacific Proving Grounds in an attempt to stop nuclear bomb tests. Although the crew was arrested in Honolulu, the public outcry over their detention would eventually be a factor in convincing President Kennedy to sign the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty of 1963, according to a news release.

Now, spurred by renewed possibilities of nuclear weapons use, the restored Golden Rule is sailing the Pacific on an educational mission for peace in the Pacific.

Lunch is $20.

For more information about Rotary, contact club President Kwanza Woodson at 268-0137 or kwoodson@hi-employment.com, or visit www. kahuluirotary.com.
