The event pays tribute to Sadako, who was two years old when the atomic bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945, near her home in Hiroshima, Japan. Sadako and her story of a thousand origami cranes have become inter-

national symbols for peace for children around the world. Program events include:

Friday, August 1
Sand Mandala for Peace ceremony

Saturday, August 2
