Monument of Peace Replacement Project
In 1975, the Wally Byam Caravan Club International 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. This 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. North Dakota Peace Garden Unit - 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.
The most important part of this Monument replacement is the fundraising that must be done within the next year in order for this project to proceed. We welcome and appreciate your donations - fill out the form and mail your check to the International Peace Garden. The International Peace Garden is a 501©(3) organization in North Dakota and a registered charity (127250181RR0001) in Canada.
Donations, with checks payable to "International Peace Garden Inc." in either US Funds or Canadian Funds can be mailed to the addresses shown, or by direct deposit into the IPC Bank Account. Please contact the IPC CEO, Mr. Doug Hevenor for more information on direct deposits.
