Preparations for Peace Day started this past Friday with the Soldiers of Peace Awards Show Bash at Benton Harbor High School. They’ll continue with the Art of Peace Museum Art Exhibit on June 1 and June 2 at the high school with tours available by reservation from 3 to 5 p.m. Everyone in the community is invited to come share in the peaceful spirit of the celebration.
