The third annual Bowling Green Community Interfaith Breakfast will be held on Wednesday, April 5, at the Junior Fair Building of the Wood County Fairgrounds, 13800 W. Poe Road. The breakfast is presented by Not In Our Town Bowling Green, in collaboration with the City of Bowling Green Human Relations Commission, and Bowling Green State University. Breakfast will be served from 7:15 – 7:45 a.m., with the program beginning at 8:00 a.m.

The breakfast will feature brief presentations from speakers reflecting a variety of major religious streams – Hinduism, Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam and Native American spirituality. The theme will be “Building Peace through Understanding: Mythbusting,” with speakers addressing the challenges to peace which come from public misconceptions.

Music will be offered by the Bowling Green High School Madrigals and by musicians from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In addition, art presentations on the theme of “peace” will be unveiled from local elementary school students.

Mayor Richard Edwards and BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey will make opening remarks. Superintendent of Bowling Green City Schools Francis Scruci will also bring greetings. The university is providing bus transportation for students who wish to attend.

There is no charge for the meal, thanks to generous sponsors and the donation of the breakfast by the South Side Six restaurant. However, reservations are required by Friday March 24, and can be made by contacting Alex Solis (BGSU Co-Chair of Not In Our Town BG) at or calling (419) 372-9452.
