The program at the Puffin Foundation Ltd. starts at 4 P.M. with speakers in front of the peace pole that was placed there in 2011. At 5 P.M. those who are able will walk to the peace pole in Leonia and others will drive. Arriving around 6 P.M.. we will join with the Leonia community in celebrating the United Nations International Day of Peace which will conclude at 7 P.M. We will have rides available for the walkers to get back to their cars in Teaneck.

The walk will begin from the Puffin Foundation parking lot after a short ceremony led by Jules Orkin, to the United Methodist Church at 391 Broad Ave., at the corner of Woodbridge and Broad Ave in Leonia. The walk is 2 miles (partly up hill) with the option to walk 1.3 miles (with no hill) to Overpeck parking lot. Please register if you plan to walk all or part of the way.

The International day of Peace was established in 1981 by the United Nations general assembly. In 2001, the UN established September 21 as an annual day of non-violence.

In 1976 the idea of placing the peace message and prayer on poles started. To date over 100,000 peace poles have been dedicated in over 190 countries around the world.

On September 21, the U.N. International Day of Peace, the Puffin Foundation celebrated its second year as a participating member of the International Peace Pole Organization. A group of peace activists met in front of the Foundation building. Representatives from the Puffin Foundation NJ Peace Action, Veteran's for Peace, Chapter 21, casino Military Families Speak Out, Teaneck Vigil, Occupy Bergen County, and the Teaneck Board of Education spoke of the importance of working for peace. The group then began their three mile walk, led by Jules Orkin, the Puffin Peace Fellow, to join the Leonia Peace Activist for a ceremony at the United Methodist Church on Broad St. in Leonia.
