Peace Day Now ANNUAL in Rockville!

During the July 2017 City Council meeting, the City of Rockville issued a Peace Day Proclamation, declaring Mattie's July 17 birthday to be a day of peace for local citizens, and stating support for the  Peace Day Party celebration. The City has been declaring Mattie's Peace Day every year since Mattie died in 2004, at the request of his Foundation. This year, the Mayor and Council voted to make this an annual event -- forevermore... a HUGE support for the Foundation's   National  Peace Day Campaign.
