Ceremony to celebrate Spring Equinox

A ceremony celebrating the literal ringing in of the Spring Equinox will take place today at 11:16 a.m. on the lawn south of the Oviatt, between the Science Building and Sierra Hall. A bell will be rung commencing the ceremony.

The Spring Equinox marks the first day of spring when day and night are exactly the same length.

The ringing of the bell denotes a prayer for peace, and has been a practice of the United Nations since 1971, said David Williams, an American Peace Movement activist.

Brian O'Leary, Jack Herer, and Carol Rosin, peace, environmental and hemp activists, are scheduled to attend the ceremony.

"This is a spiritual time for renewal," Williams said. "A special focus to bring together people's minds in a natural point in time."
