Rotary Club installs peace poles

The Columbian

OLD EVERGREEN HIGHWAY — The Rotary Club of Vancouver recently installed and dedicated peace poles at the Jane Weber Evergreen Arboretum and the Share Fromhold Service Center in Vancouver. The organizations will also have 10 trees planted in Africa in their honor. The poles say “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in four languages. There are estimated to be more than 250,000 poles in every country in the world dedicated as monuments to peace. Peace poles are now recognized as the most prominent international symbol and monument to peace. They remind us to think, speak and act in the spirit of peace and harmony. Promoting peace is one of Rotary’s key causes.
