WALK TO END DOMESTIC ABUSE — Over 60 participants of varying ages traveled more than a mile from the Kiwanis Park gazebo and back through downtown Dover-Foxcroft during the Partners for Peace’s Walk to End Domestic Abuse on Oct. 4 as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Partners for Peace changed its name from the Spruce Run-Womancare Alliance earlier in the year to reflect the fact that many residents and groups in Piscataquis and Penobscot counties are working together to put an end to domestic violence and everyone has a role. The march symbolized how Partners for Peace will walk with the community every step of the way. Holding the banner is Partners for Peace Facilitative Director Amanda Cost and Chuck McCaffrey.

The event was held as part of the nation-wide Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which in 2017 was formally recognized with a proclamation signed by the Dover-Foxcroft board of selectmen.
