A Plea from the Peace Farm

Dear Peace Farm friends,

We have not asked for donations for several years. As you know, we sold the Farm, except for one empty acre, which allows us to get communications from Pantex as a neighbor. Therefore, we've had enough money for awhile to pay for the few things we still do, mainly sending someone for several years now, except this year, to the ANA ( Alliance for Nuclear Accountability, our larger national organization) Lobby Days in Washington , D.C. That is fairly expensive, so our account is going down enough that we feel it is time to increase it some. We will rely on the people who have emails since we don't want to spend a lot on overhead and our regular mail list is very old and not reliable.

As I'm sure you know, the dangers of nuclear weapons are still with us. Russia and the U.S. are still on hair trigger for a nuclear war, and the Crimea situation put that back into reality as a definite possibility. We always want the Peace Farm to be a local and viable part of the antinuclear network throughout the nation and the world. We must continue to represent this area where all U.S. bombs are assembled. If you able to support us monetarily, please send us your contribution to: The Peace Farm, Box 4130 , Amarillo , TX 79116-4130 . You can also pay online at peacefarm.us.

We would appreciate if you would let us know any ideas you have about what we can do yet to continue making our mark on the nuclear problem. If you would like to be involved in some way, we would like to know that, too. Thanks for all you've done to make our world the place of peace and life for the next generations!

Sincerely,

Jerry Stein, convener
The Peace Farm
