A Message from the International Peace Arch Association
AMERICANS & CANADIANS COMMITMENT TO EACH OTHER
These are uncharted waters for all of us. We are confident that we will overcome this difficult time like our forefathers who built the Peace Arch. They survived the devastation of WW1 and the Spanish Flu Pandemic which followed the end of that horrific war. In 1920, they came together to finish creating their Peace Arch.
As we walk in our forefathers' footsteps towards the 100th anniversary of the monument in 2021, we must remember that, like them, we will come out of this as better people. Next year at HATB we will Celebrate and Commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Peace Arch and 100 years of scouts and youth gathering at the Arch the name of peace.
With that being said, we are honored and privileged to invite all of you to attend the
Hands Across the Border Celebration on Sunday, June 13th, 2021.
EARLY BIRD Registration will open on January 10th, 2021.
We will be holding the 2021 Hands Across the Border Peace Arch Centennial program online due to the continued Pandemic and the BC Provincial Park closure. Like our past events in the park, there will be a registration fee for the celebration. Participants will receive a goodie bag with flags, patches, pins, a peacekeeper certificate, and more.
We will mail out all registered participant's goodie bags to them two weeks before the event. This way, you will be ready for your party for the Peace Arch when the big day arrives! We are working out the final details and logistics of holding the event this way. Details will be posted here on or before January 30th, 2021.
Sorry for the delay. It is us taking longer to figure out the logistics of shipping costs etc. Eventbrite can NOT add a shipping fee based on the number of people registered in each order. We are working on how to integrate that cost into the registration fee.
Update Posted January 27th, 2020.
We need your continued support for the Hands Across the Border Celebration!
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT
The International Peace Arch Association needs your support. The annual Hands Across the Border Celebration provided the association with vital funding that supported us during the six months a year we spend planning the annual celebration but also helped us spread the inspirational message of the Peace Arch and its founders year-round. Please consider making a donation to support our ongoing mission.
COMING SOON E-LEARNING!
The International Peace Arch Association is creating an E-Leaning project. Earlier this year, we had our Portal of Peace educational material approved by the Washington State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) during the 2020-2021 school year. As soon as we get this education material online, you will be able to access it at our main website peacearchpark.org
