Baha’is in Door and Kewaunee Counties are preparing to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Baha’u’llah, the founder of the Baha’i Faith, the weekend of Oct. 21-22. Plans underway for the “Light of Unity” festival include: a birthday celebration with prayers, informational film and refreshments Oct. 21, 1 – 4:30 pm, in the Jane Greene Room of the Sturgeon Bay Library; Oct. 21, 7 – 9:30 pm at 9633 Cty A in Fish Creek; and Oct. 22, 1 pm at a remembrance gathering with interfaith prayers for America at 232 N. 4th St., Algoma. These events are free and open to the public. In addition, a commemorative bench will be placed at Heritage Park, Algoma, and a tree dedication will take place at a later time in the Memorial Orchard of the Washington Island Farm Museum.
In Door County, the Baha’i Faith was introduced in the 1940s in several places including Sevastopol, Washington Island, Egg Harbor and Town of Gibraltar. For more information visit doorcountybahais.org.
