On March 19, the Rotary Club of Sherwood will be dedicating its fourth Peace Pole at Sherwood United Methodist Church 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 with commitments for 6 more at sites throughout town. The languages displayed on their pole will be English, Arabic, Hebrew and Mandarin Chinese. 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, United Methodist Church and to participate in a series of peace-related educational events and activities being offered in Sherwood over the coming months.
