The Peace Pole Little Free Library- Brookside Book House- Ann Arbor, Michigan-USA

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Dear Little Free Library and Peace Pole Project,

Greetings from Michigan!

We installed our neighborhood Little Free Library & Peace Pole in front of our home over a month ago, and with the weather starting to warm up, things are now springing to life at the Brookside Book House.

Although we have not had a formal dedication or ceremony, we’ve already received many words of thanks and encouragement, along with book donations from friends and our local bookstore, to help us start sharing our love of books and the message of peace together. Thank you to both of your organizations and staff for your support in our community efforts world-wide!

Share a Book in Peace!

Peace Pole carved from the same marble used in Washington, DC to build the Lincoln Memorial- Jasper, Georgia-USA

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

On Wednesday, May 24, 2017 at 12:00 P.M., the Rotary Club of Jasper dedicated its Peace Pole.

The dedication ceremony was held at Rotary Peace Park located behind the Boys and Girls Club of Jasper at 101 Freedom Way, Jasper, Georgia.

One of Rotary Internationals primary areas of focus is the promotion of peace throughout the world.

Peace Poles are recognized as the most prominent international symbol and monument for peace. They symbolize the oneness of humanity and our common wish for a world at peace.

Peace Poles bear the message, “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in the different languages of the world.

In considering a Peace Pole for their park, the Rotary Club of Jasper recognized the unique opportunity available to us as the home of Georgia Marble. Their Peace Pole was manufactured locally by Blue Ridge Marble and carved from the same marble as was used in Washington, DC to build the Lincoln Memorial.

Placed on a marble base, the monument totals ten ft. in height. On each of the four sides of the Peace Pole, two different languages displays the peace message, “May Peace Prevail on Earth” for a total of eight different languages. Our Peace Pole displays English, Cherokee, French, Esperanto, Spanish, German, Italian and Russian languages.

2017 will also mark the 100th year of the beginning of the Rotary Foundation. This Peace Pole will serve to commemorate that event for the Rotary Club of Jasper.
