The demonstration she saw at the corner of Miller Avenue and Camino Alto was perhaps one of the first for Seniors for Peace. The group was founded in 2003 by Rolly Mulvey, a resident at the Redwoods community for seniors, to oppose the United States’ involvement in Iraq.
At the time, many of the members had experienced war firsthand, and were concerned about the loss of life on both sides, according to Nancy Miller, co-chair of the group.
The group is celebrating 20 years as an organization, which is still going strong with its ranks growing. It has more than 100 members and volunteers across the county.
