Press Release: by Bev Garret, Rotary Club of Volcano
The Rotary Club of Volcano is partnering with Kau Rural Heath Community Association, Kau Hospital & Rural Health Clinic and invite the community to dedication ceremonies of a new International Peace Pole in Pahala on Thursday September 22 at 9:00am, at the entrance to Kau Hospital to celebrate International Peace Day.
A Peace Pole is an internationally recognized symbol of the hopes and dreams of the human family, standing vigil in silent prayer for peace on earth. Each Peace Pole bears the message
“May Peace Prevail on Earth” in different languages on each of its four or six sides. There are estimated over 250,000 Peace Poles in every country in the world, including one outside the
Volcano Art Center.
Planting a Peace Pole is a way of bringing people together to inspire, awaken and uplift the human consciousness the world over. The Pahala Peace Pole dedication ceremony includes
Kupuna, local church leaders, Hawaii County Mayor’s Office, Rotary Club of Volcano, Kau Rural Health Community Association, Kau Hospital & Rural Health Clinic, Hilo Medical
Center, HHSC East Hawaii Board of Directors, elected officials and community.
We invite everyone to visit the Peace Pole the next time you are in Pahala town.
