Peace Light Travels from Bethlehem to Galveston

– Sea Scout Base Galveston (SSBG) on Wednesday accepted a Peace Light to maintain throughout December as a symbol of international peace and goodwill. The Passing of the Peace Light took place at Sea Scout Base Galveston on the fifth floor in the Commodore Room. SSBG received the light from local Sea Scout Ship 45.

Originally organized in 1986, the The Peace Light from Bethlehem campaign was created to spread a message of peace throughout the world. Each year an Austrian child retrieves a light from the Bethlehem Grotto where Jesus was born. This light is carried throughout Europe and the United States where people can light their own candles from the original flame to return to their countries with this message of peace to keep lit throughout the Christmas Season. Sea Scout Base Galveston is participating in this worthy cause to bring the message of peace and brotherhood to Galveston, Texas.

Sea Scout Base Galveston (SSBG) is located in Galveston, Texas. Located on Offatts Bayou, SSBG is a high adventure and educational destination for the community of Galveston. SSBG’s Mission is to offer aquatic education programs that instill lifetime leadership, teamwork skills, and independence in body, mind and spirit. SSBG offers diverse programs in sailing, maritime education, and community activities. The entire facility is handicap accessible making it a great destination for adaptive sports on the water. SSBG has meeting space and vessels available to rent for anyone planning a meeting or corporate team building activity.
