*FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*
*Veterans For Peace Tampa Bay Chapter 119 *
*Veterans/Armistice Day Vigils*
**
*Friday November 11, 2005 Veterans For Peace Tampa Bay Chapter 119
*urges you to participate either in a day ceremony or evening vigil to honor
living Veteran survivors of war and the Armistice of the Great War. The
origin of this day is the Armistice treaty that ended the Great War of
1914-1918 in France on the 11 month, 11th day, 11th hour and minute in 1918.
Armistice Day was later changed to Veterans Day in 1954. At these vigils we
hope to bring back the true meaning of this day: to make peace instead of
celebrating the horrors of war.

*Daytime Memorial Vigil* will be held at the Veterans Flag Memorial at 1st
Ave N and 3rd St N in Williams Park, St Petersburg between 11AM to 12:30PM.
Invocations will be given by the Muslim, Jewish and Christian Clergy. The
Fallen of Tampa Bay and Florida roster will be recited from the current
conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. A movable memorial will in place.
Speakers may include Veterans, elected officials, poets, singers to lead us
in song and those with a message of peace for humanity. Street parking is
available. Then we all can forage at a nearby restaurant.

*Candle Light Vigil* will held from 6:30 to 8:30 PM Friday November 11th
across from Bayshore Park and the Patriots Corner in Tampa,FL at
intersection of W Bay to Bay and Bayshore Blvds. We will repeat the morning
event for those who had to work. Then at the end of the ceremonies we will
spread up and down the sidewalk along the bay with our candles and make new
friends. And again we all can forage at a nearby restaurant.

Additional information:
Park your vehicle at the park's lot or on a side street. Cross over safely
and link up in a ongoing line that will flow up or down the shoreline
sidewalk. Please leave space for pedestrians access on the sidewalk. We
should make a good impact and we will be below one of the flight paths for
MacDill AFB and passing motorists.
