ROTARY PEACE POLE

  • Written by Valley View Staff
The Rotary Club of Duvall and Mayor Amy Ockerlander will be unveiled Duvall’s Peace Pole on Friday, December 7, 2018 at 5:00 PM, at the Duvall Police Station. Rotary President Cory Johnson lead the dedication and the community joined in just prior to the Annual Tree Lighting event. The first 60 groups present for the dedication received free flashlights.
 
Duvall’s Peace Pole displays the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in different languages to promote fellowship and instill a sense of community among all residents of the Snoqualmie Valley. The pole carries the message in English, Hindi, Spanish and Hmong. The Peace Pole Project began in Japan in the 1970’s and in 1986 was established in the United States. There are more than 200,000 Peace Poles that have been dedicated in nearly every country on Earth with Peace Poles installed at private and public locations including schools, parks, community and civic buildings. In Western Washington, Peace Poles have already been planted at Seattle Center, in Bellevue, Sammamish, and more. The City of Duvall and Duvall Police Department support the project.
Rotary International is one of many organizations which, along with individuals, participate in the Peace Pole Project to promote peace, which is one of Rotary’s six areas of focus.
