On April 1st at 1:30 pm we will install our Peace Pole at the Library Annex Garden in San Jose (map). Please come join us for this celebration and meet some Bisbee Rotarians! Youngsters from the Boys and Girls Club of Bisbee and the Library Annex will join us. Refreshments will be served!
“As Rotarians, we refuse to accept conflict as a way of life. Through our service projects and community outreach, we are taking action to address the underlying causes of conflict.”
“Sometimes, it’s just a matter of using the right words. A Peace Pole is a monument declaring the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in the language of the country in which it is planted and usually several other languages. Peace Poles were created in 1955 in Japan by Masahisa Goi, in wake of the destruction wrought by World War II and the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Devastated by the repercussions of war, Goi wished to spread a message of peace worldwide.”
