CLYMER, N.Y. — Clymer Central School alumni are tuning up their singing voices in the name of peace.

Graduates are being invited back to the school in August for a one-day songfest event in an effort to re-establish a Memorial Peace Award, a scholarship given in honor of four local men — Robert Donnell, Dennis Hogenboom, Jerry Wiggers and Martin Erickson — who died during the Vietnam War.

The award — which was first presented in 1971 — is given each year at graduation, but due to lack of funds, the scholarship has not been presented since 2000.
