You are invited to a crane folding event this Saturday, April 19th from 1-3 at the Juneau- Douglas City Museum.
Previously nine ladies gathered at organizer Jackie Triplette’s home on Monday, April 14 to make origami cranes. The majority were Juneau High School students when Mary Tanaka was attending.
The crane is considered a symbol of peace and hope and the 1,000 we have in mind to grace the memorial on its dedication day is considered a particularly fortuitous number.
With Monday’s four-hour session Jackie estimates there are over 500 cranes now completed. She has organized a community crane-making event at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum with Jane Lindsay, museum director, for this Saturday, April 19, from 1-3. All are welcome to attend.
