"with additioonal material (Peace Bell ringing by Sec. Gen. Ban Ki-Moon on International Day of Peace on Sept. 21, 2014 and footage from Pete Seeger ringing the Peace Bell on Earth Day 2009, and the Lexington, KT World's largest Peace Bell ringing......}.
We are now in the process of editing a large volume of archival material regarding the history of the Peace Bell and a documentary of Earth Day on the Equinox, and will keep you all informed. This story will be part of our website and we welcome your input.
Please note, the Peace Bell has now been fully restored and is back in its permanent location in the Zen Garden at the UN. There will be a big event at the UN on May 6th 2015 with a rededication and a blessing by Shinto priests and we expect to have full access to the site for next year's Earth Day observance, which will be on Saturday, March 19, 2016, with the Equinox at 11:30pm, NY time --- which will be Sunday, March 20, 2016 with the Equinox at 5:30 Vienna time."
Vienna celebration could not happen because of early morning and weekend time.
