Medford Congregational United Church of Christ
Warmly invites YOU to the Dedication of our
Green Legacy Hiroshima Peace Tree
Sunday, May 22
1801 E. Jackson St., Medford, OR
We'll meet in the Sanctuary Narthex then move outside to bless our tree
Please join us as we dedicate our special persimmon tree - grown from the seed of a legacy tree that survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima 76 years ago. Lovingly gathered by volunteers in Japan, these precious seeds have been shared around the world, to serve as living ambassadors of peace, hope and resilience.
Come hear the story of our tree's journey, meet Hideko Tamura Snider, who survived the Hiroshima bombing as a child, and will read her children's book "When a Peace Tree Blooms".
Children will be invited to help bless the tree with nourishing water and origami peace cranes
Masks requested - to protect our vulnerable children and elders.
