July 25, 2021

Update – Video

Commemoration of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

This year we will commemorate the H/N atomic bombing on Thursday, August 5th, 7:30 PM, at the Avon Traffic Circle, Routes 5&20 in Avon, NY.  It will be the 47th consecutive year in which we have held a commemoration.  We will be joined by members of the Rochester, NY Chapter 23 of Veterans for Peace, with whom we work closely.

There will be signs, songs, candles, and sharing of hope for a peaceful human future!


This is an in-person, not virtual, event.  Rain or shine (except for thunderstorms).  Every peaceful person is welcome!

COVID: Of course, anyone who feels more comfortable wearing a mask should wear one.  We expect unvaccinated people to wear a mask.  People will be able to maintain physical distancing if they choose.  (It’s a large traffic circle.  Plenty of room.)
