President of the group, Richard Keefer, tells WNY News Now he hopes recreating the symbolic photo will make an impact for future generations. 









Around 120 people, including a 101-year-old woman and local dignitaries like State Assemblyman Andy Goodell, State Senator George Borrello and Chautauqua County Executive PJ Wendel posed for the photograph.  

Additionally, a group of therapy horses was on hand to help recreate the feel of the old photo.
