Hiroshima Remembered in Oak Ridge

The Y12 Nuclear Weapons Complex which enriched the uranium fuel for the Little Boy bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, Japan in 1945 was the site of a Names and Remembrance ceremony on August 6, 2014. Workers arriving at the plant found a peaceful vigil and a chain of peace lanterns across from the main entrance to the bomb plant.

Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

The OREPA Board has now decided that we are prepared to do a limited re-opening of the Sunday vigil to allow for slightly more participation.  We are asking anyone who wants to attend a Sunday vigil to sign up in advance—by the Thursday before. There are two ways to sign up. You can email Ralph at orep@earthlink.net or you can call him at 865 776 5050. If the five slots are already taken, we’ll ask you to wait until next week. All vigilers are expected to wear masks. Bring your own chair. Avoid physical contact and maintain an appropriate social distance in the circle of chairs. Of course, if for any reason you feel you may have been exposed to the virus or to someone with the virus, you should not attend the vigil. At this point, we are not resuming our monthly potlucks.
