HeRSToRy 089 Lynn Varricchio

    As a member of the Rochester group, Catholics Against Nuclear Arms, Lynn had been leafleting at Seneca Army Depot for several years before the women's encampment existed. In the course of her travels to and from Romulus, she had noticed a run-down farm for sale and brought it to the attention of peace camp organizers. She, along with other women from Rochester, were instrumental in raising funds to buy the land and securing the necessary permits for its operation.
