2013 Peace Bell Ceremony

On July 9, 2013 we enjoyed our annual Peace Bell Ceremony, commemorating the
lives lost during the allied bombing of our sister city, Gifu, Japan, on
August 9, 1945. We offer the annual ceremony to express our hope for peace
and international harmony now and in the future.

The ceremony took place once again at the Peace Bell Center in Newport,
Kentucky. This year, they arranged a special treat for us ... we got to
ring the bell.

Asami Ono, a citizen of Gifu, and a friend helped to ring the bell.
