Once again we offer you the opportunity to join together for an evening of fellowship, conversation, good food, and a chance to explore important issues of the day.

This year will feature John Tierney, who has worked for advancing our national security in Congress and as Executive Director of Council for a Livable World. He has long studied our nuclear threats and has a realistic view of our needs.

The evening's proceeds will help support the Harrisburg Peace Garden, founded and maintained by Physicians for Social Responsibility, The City of Harrisburg, and now Harrisburg Rotary Club. Here we have planted flowers, trees, and ideas of peace, justice, health, and harmony with our planet.
Support the Peace Garden, our community, and life everywhere - Join us on October 11!

About our speaker . . .
John Tierney is currently Executive Director of Council for a Livable World. He brings broad experience to this position, having served 18 years in the House of Representatives as Congressman from Massachusetts. He served on the House Intelligence Committee and chaired the National Security and Foreign Affairs Subcommittee of the Government Oversight and Reform Committee. John spent considerable time advocating nuclear non-proliferation and national security issues. He continues this advocacy in his current position.

He grew up in Salem, MA, and worked his way through Salem State College majoring in political science. He was president of his class and the student body and returned in 2009 to receive an honorary degree. John then went on to Suffolk University Law School. While working as a law office clerk and State House janitor, he earned his degree and was admitted to the Massachusetts bar. He practiced law until he was elected to Congress. John is married to Patrice Tierney.

Senator Ed Markey said, "In his years in the U.S. House of Representatives, John was an unyielding force for stopping the proliferation of nuclear weapons."

With his experience and passion for the very important nuclear and national security issues that face us today, we are indeed fortunate to have John with us tonight!
