Monument of Peace

 

Newly delivered, Monument of Peace, August 17, 2015, to be dedicated Sunday, July 24, 2016

In 1975, the Wally Byam Caravan Club Inc., (WBCCI) and the City of Brandon jointly donated a monument that was placed in the International Peace Garden during the 1975 International Rally held in Brandon, Manitoba. The monument was a symbol of the achievement by two nations working together for peace. Years later, it was removed as it deteriorated to a point of non-repair.

The North Dakota Peace Garden Unit of Region 7, through a special committee approved at the January 13, 2012 WBCCI IBT meeting in Hattiesburg, MS is replacing the monument at the International border.

Today, WBCCI has the opportunity to participate in the four-year celebration commemorating 200 years of peace since the War of 1812 between the nations of the United States of America and Canada by replacing the monument. Visit the Project Status page to see how the project is progressing.

The most important part of this Monument replacement is the fundraising that must be done in order for this project to proceed.
