To celebrate Ranallo’s many years of holding a “Honk for Peace” sign on SR 776 at West Dearborn Street, members of both organizations will join her in holding peace signs. Following that, everyone will move to the Elsie Quirk Library for a 1:00 – 2:30 celebration honoring Jean for her dedication to promoting peace.
Rosemary Hagen, who stood at the same intersection holding signs for peace for many years, will present Ranallo with a print by French artist Fernand Leger. The work depicts doves nesting in the remains of what looks like a cannon. Hagen proposed the events honoring Ranallo. Hagen and Dick Nelson, another veteran peace sign holder, will make remarks.
