5th Annual Walk to Sherwood Rotary Peace Poles
The Sherwood Rotary Club invites everyone in the community to join us at our 5th Annual Walk to Sherwood Rotary Peace Poles displayed in the Old Town Area of Sherwood Oregon.
In keeping with Rotary's mission to promote conflict resolution and world peace, Sherwood Rotary will be offering a number of activities to engage families in recognizing International Peace Day which is celebrated in countries around the globe. The event began in 1981 with a United Nations resolution, and ceremonies have continued to expand since then.
Walkers should meet at the Sherwood Rotary Craft Table in Sherwood Saturday Market, located at 22622 SW Pine Street, Cannery Square.
