Some years ago, Jeff and Kim Wells went to hear Jane Goodall speak at the University of South Florida. Among other things, Goodall talked about a youth program she was sponsoring with groups around the world. The program is like scouts with an environmental focus.
One of the projects of the youth groups is to make these large Peace Dove puppets for parades and demonstrations. At the USF talk, Goodall described how to make the dove. After the lecture, Jeff found the instructions online and decided to make a dove for LUCC to display at the St. Petersburg International Day of Peace Celebration in Straub Park downtown. The dove has been flown on several other occasions including at Circus McGirkus.
This year the peace dove was stirred from its rest in the rafters of the church garage and flown around the church lawn before the service for Earth Sunday April 23.
One thought on “Jane Goodall Peace Dove Soars for Earth Sunday”
Loved seeing the peace dove flying again! Remember seeing it in garage rafters and wondering if it would soar ever again! Love and blessings!
