Volunteers and representatives from the International Peace Arch Association celebrated the 95th anniversary of the International Peace Arch on September 6 at the Blaine Post Office. Members of the association, including Christina Winkler, right, and volunteer Carroll Solomon, left, paste stamps onto the 95th anniversary commemorative postcards, which were available by donation. “We’ve created a piece of history,” Winkler said. Titled, “A Time to Remember and Reflect,” the limited edition postcard is one of three used to commemorate the anniversary of the Peace Arch. The 75th, 85th and now 95th anniversary postcards, have also received commemorative cancellations from the United States Postal Service. The day-long event featured a dove release and informal ceremony.
