International Day of Peace – Peace Cranes

September 23, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

Each year, our chapter partners with OREPA to observe International Peace Day by folding origami cranes
known as “Peace Cranes,” in honor of Sadako Sasaki,
who died after the bombing of Hiroshima during World War II.
You can watch a short 8-minute documentary on Youtube about Sadako here.


OREPA and CISV Smoky Mountain will be at
Union Avenue Books
517 Union Avenue, Knoxville, TN 37902
Saturday, Sept 23, 2023 from 10am-7pm


Come fold one or more Peace Cranes and stay as long as you like.
Don’t forget to bring a chair!
Shirts will be given to those that fold 30 cranes, while supplies last!
Contact Julie Jones with questions.
