Holland Patent, NY Peace Pole-September 24, 2008

Plans had been underway a year ago, to have a Peace Pole planted in our village park. Last night a troop of 20 Boy Scouts dug a four foot hole to accommodate the Peace Pole.
The pole is crafted from locally grown larch, and has 8 sides. We have 8 plates already, and will be adding more over the years. The plates will be installed before winter, and a big dedication will be planned for spring.
This process is ongoing. It has opened the eyes of a very Republican, traditional community to the mission of The World Peace Prayer Society, and its message May Peace Prevail On Earth. Our ecumenical, community group will keep you informed.
In peace,
Gabrielle McGhee
