, 2014

On November 11th, 2014, the USCPAA was pleased to be invited to participate
in the WA 125 Celebration in Olympia, WA.


The USCPAA  welcomed the World Harmony Peace Run to Peace Arch State and Provincial Parks on June 30th, 2014. At a special ceremony the peace runners presented community members with the Torch Bearer Awards for their work in the international park.


As Peace Arch State Park Manager, Jason Snow, has worked with the many diverse groups that utilize the park during the year. Whether the event is a wedding, protest, civic ceremony, a gathering of ten
thousand scouts or an art exhibition, Jason treats everyone he meets with respect and kindness.

To many of these individuals at these events Jason is the first person they come into contact with in Blaine. We can all be proud that he represents not only the park but also the loving and embracing heart of this community. In his role at the park.

Jason is also a valued advocate for Peace Arch and its heritage and preservation, helping to advance the unique role of the International Peace Park. See complete event photos and Torch Bearer Awards
recipients Bob Hines, Jerry Gay, and Richard E. Clark.
