Come join in the dedication of a Sherwood Rotary Peace Pole during the American Legion Hall #56 during the ART Walk 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. The languages displayed on the pole will be English, Chinuk Wawa, American Sign, and French. 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 with commitments for more at sites throughout town. 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 100 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 YMCA, St. Francis, Our Table, Sherwood United Methodist, Center for the Art, The American Legion and to participate in a series of peace-related educational events and activities being offered in Sherwood over the coming months.
