Sherwood Rotary Peace Pole Project
Sherwood Rotary initiated its Peace Pole project in 2016 to raise awareness in the community of the need to promote world peace and understanding. The Peace Poles are 6 feet high and display the words "May Peace Prevail On Earth" in 4 different languages. To date, Peace Poles have been erected at the Sherwood YMCA, St. Francis Catholic Church and School, Our Table Cooperative, Sherwood United Methodist Church, Sherwood Center for the Arts, Sherwood Senior Center, American Legion Post #56, Sherwood Police Department, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue Station #33, Sherwood Community Garden, Sherwood High School, Gardner Real Estate and Al's Garden Center, with commitments for more at sites throughout Sherwood.
Sherwood Rotary has qualified as a Peace Builder Club and is part of Rotary District 5100 which has taken on a major initiative to establish Peace Poles in Oregon and Washington in partnership with the Jubitz Family Foundation which is providing funding for the project.
Members of the community are encouraged to view the Peace Poles at the locations listed above and at communities around the area and worldwide. Join us to participate in a series of peace-related educational events and activities being offered in Sherwood over the coming months.
