In June 1996, the Coalition to Oppose the Arms
Trade (COAT) held a "Potluck Dinner Party" to celebrate Roy and
50th wedding anniversary. This event, designed to "honour them and their
relentless work for peace," was attended by about 80 people.
Letter of Invitation to the
Event: This four-page letter, which
gives an excellent summary of Roy and Sylvia's lives, highlights their deep and
longstanding commitment to the peace movement.

who interviewed Roy and Sylvia when researching their lives for this letter,
died in 2015.)
