Everyone invited to interfaith picnic in Pleasanton

Barbecue/potluck to recognize International Peace Day

Interfaith Interconnect of the Tri-Valley will hold its seventh annual potluck picnic in recognition of International Peace Day, from 4-7 p.m. next Saturday (Sept. 21).

The free event will be held at the Muslim Community Center, 5724 W. Las Positas Blvd., with face painting, bubbles, henna and calligraphy designs, mandala coloring, a bingo icebreaker, a piñata and more. Children and adults of all ages are welcome to join in the fun and visit with people from diverse communities.

The Muslim Community Center is hosting the halal barbecue and veggie burgers, and those who attend are asked to bring a dish to share (no pork). It is requested that food be accompanied by a list of ingredients to accommodate various religious, cultural and other dietary needs.

Plates, utensils, water, tea and lemonade will be provided, and no alcohol is allowed. In case of very hot weather or rain, the event will be held indoors. There is no need to RSVP, and the adjacent lot has ample parking.

Interfaith Interconnect comprises more than 20 Tri-Valley congregations with the mission to "enrich, inform and educate ourselves and others about the great diversity of faiths and cultures in our valley."

I admire efforts of MCC (Muslim Community Center) for hosting interfaith picnic. I hope large number of people turn up to strengthen our communities and get to know our neighbors.
