(Moncton, Nov. 15, 2019) – Tickets are now available online for the YMCA of Greater Moncton’s upcoming Peace Lunch & Learn.

The event, sponsored by JE Hastings Ltd. and the Chocolate River Candy Company, takes place at noon Thursday, December 5 at the Inspiration Café, located in the basement of the Community Peace Centre, 22 Church St., Moncton.

“With so much divisiveness in the world, it’s more important than ever that we celebrate acts of peace in our communities,” says Zane Korytko, CEO of the local YMCA. “Along with celebrating the work of our Peace Medal recipients, we will also recognize the acts of peace carried out by our host venue, the Inspiration Café. It will be an inspiring event!”

The YMCA Peace Medal, created in 1987, is awarded to individuals or groups, who – without any special resources, status, wealth or position – demonstrate a commitment to the values of P-E-A-C-E (participation, empathy, advocacy, community, empowerment) through contributions within their local, national or global community. 

The 2019 Peace Medals will be presented to:

  • Hali Douthwright of Moncton
  • Robert Stewart of Shediac
  • Emily Tozer of Riverview

Tickets for the YMCA of Greater Moncton Peace Lunch & Learn are $25 per person and are available online at the following Eventbrite link:
