February 22nd, 2013

On February 22nd, 2013, Jim Dugan, of The World Peace Prayer Society met with organizer Amelia Roger and several hundred Girl Scouts and their parents for World Thinking Day. They all got together at 6:30 p.m., on this chilly Friday evening at Center Court in the famous Galleria Mall in Poughkeepsie, New York for a World Peace Flag Ceremony to give thanks for their international friendships and to remember that we are all part of a global community. This is not the first time the Girl Scouts in this part of New York State have participated in the World Peace Flag Ceremony on World Thinking Day and it certainly will not be the last.
