GRAFTON - Drums sounded. Monks chanted. And prayers of peace and unity echoed through the eastern Rensselaer County hills as men, women and children of all faiths celebrated the Grafton Peace Pagoda's 14th anniversary at a ceremony Saturday.

With blue skies, colorful foliage, and warm temperatures, hundreds gathered in front of the Peace Pagoda to pray for world peace, non-violence, and an end to materialism and global warming.
