Capacity Crowd Attends Fundraiser for War of 1812 Bicentennial Peace Garden (Batavia)

A fundraiser for the War of 1812 Bicentennial Peace Garden was held last night at Terry Hills. A capacity crowd heard former Batavian Terry Anderson, and the longest held American Hostage talk about the current Middle East Situation.

Anderson also revealed that he will be leaving Ohio where he has been living since his release from captivity in 1991. He will be moving back to New York State and will probably reside in the Hudson-Valley area. At the dinner, the family of former Congressman Barber Conable was presented with the first Friends of Peace Award. Conable represented Genesee County in Congress from 1964 to 1984 and then served as president of the World Bank from 1986 to 1991. He died in 2003.
