Join us for this family friendly event to commemorate the lives lost in the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings 77 years ago and make sure that such nuclear attacks never again take place. We remember the past, so that we can envision and work for a peaceful, just and nuclear-free future.

The event will be open to the public to attend at Tenney Park outside of the John Wall Family Pavilion and the entire event will be held outdoors weather & temperature depending. You are welcome to mail in your lantern design by August 2nd to our office if you cannot be in attendance.
