Peace Vigil with ORCA

For the better part of two decades, Ed Epley and friends, maintained a Peace Vigil outside the Benton County Courthouse daily from 5:00 – 6:00 pm. The consistent visual of folks advocating for life without war reminds hurried motorists for a brief moment that not everyone gets to go home to a peaceful life after a hard day at work. Most folks honk or flash a “V” finger formation as they pass by to show their agreement with ending war. Since Ed’s death in January, several community groups are making efforts to keep the peace vigil a continuing symbol that Corvallis is for peace. Our Revolution Corvallis Allies sponsors Thursdays from 5:00 – 6:00 pm each week. Please, grab your partner, your kid, your friends, or neighbor and join us in front of the Courthouse on Thursdays to demonstrate we still want to give peace a chance.
