BIRDS OF PEACE
Jessie Garza reports that the Yakima Herald-Republic did a really nice story about the, “Stop the Gang Violence Parent/Community Forum” in the Sunday edition on the front page. On the website, http://www.yakima-herald.com/ scroll down to Local News and the click on Forum, which takes hard look at keeping kids out of gangs. This will take you to the story. There’s some cool pictures including the bird release of pigeons. Randy Winters and his wife Rosie are members of the Yakima Valley Racing Pigeon Club. They did presentations to the kids/students who came to the forum with their parents, about our sport of racing pigeons. At the end of the forum, he released the pigeons, which was done to close the event with the “Bird of Peace”.
