With temperatures in the high 80s and high humidity, several folks sitting under a shade tree in the Village Park seemed happy just to take a load off last week.
The 10 or so protesters against the war in Iraq stopped in Waunakee on their 450-mile walk from Chicago, Ill., to St. Paul, Minn., where they will conclude with the Republican National Convention.
They are part of the Witness Against War project, and during their stop in Waunakee June 29, several village residents came to visit with them and learn of their journey so far.
Area resident Don Spencer, planned to prepare lunch for the group the following day before sending them on their way.
