On Saturday, June 2 at 10:00 am, Friends Academy and the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center join together to celebrate area veterans by hosting a contemplative walk and guided meditation in the forest on our campus.

This event is free and open to the public, and walkers will meet in the parking lot. We hope that families from school will join us.  Please RSVP by visiting or by calling The Zeiterion’s box office at 508-994-2900.

Please consider writing a letter of thanks to veterans. We seek to line the walking trail with simple letters or pictures of thanks to veterans for their service. Participants can drop letters off to Katherine Gaudet at school. We hope that you will be able to participate in this special event!
