To the editor:
I would like to thank Doris Dort and John Bond for encouraging the Lawrence community to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the United Nations during the week of Oct. 24. The United Nations has announced the theme of the 2005 United Nations Day as "Child Health and Survival: The Millennium Development Goals and the Most Vulnerable."
In honor of this monumental event, the Lawrence Chapter of the United Nations Assn. (USA), is providing one arena for celebration from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday at the Lawrence Public Library. Several local organizations will be participating in the festivities, including KU UNICEF, Model U.N. at Kansas University and the U.N. Club at Free State High School. In addition, the Century School Choir will perform at 11:30 a.m.
We will be serving birthday cake and providing information about the accomplishments and goals of both local and national organizations.
We sincerely hope you can join us for all or part of the day.
Charles Fantz, president,
Lawrence Chapter of the United Nations,
