Vancouver Sunrise Rotary members contribute to Peace Pole Project-Vancouver, Washington-USA

Our Rotary has developed and maintained the rose garden at Orchards Park to honor Clark County citizens who have done great things for the county for 30 years.

We wanted to put the Peace Pole there mainly to get the club recognized as a peace club. We wanted to put up the Peace Pole and do a few other things as a club to promote peace in the area.

Rotarians have long been involved in the promotion of peace.

Rotarians were even involved with setting up the United Nations after World War II.  It’s something Rotarians have felt very strong about.

John Schaffers was joined at Saturday’s installation and dedication of the Peace Pole by fellow Vancouver Sunrise Rotarians David Weedman, Bob Ives and Erich Orth.
