Reclaim Armistice Day 2022

Thanks to all those who came out for the Armistice Day celebration on Friday. We joyfully rang our bells and rededicated ourselves to peace. Afterward, the Fairbanks Peace Choir led us in singing “Dona Nobis Pacem” (Give Us Peace) and “Finlandia” (Song of Peace) by Jean Sibelius. We are very grateful that the Peace Choir could join us on this day. Later, each person gave a brief perspective on what Armistice Day means to them. We are glad to have had this opportunity to gather together and rededicate ourselves to working toward peace.

Haley Lehman from the News-Miner was present and wrote up a nice story about the event, with photos.
