“May peace prevail on Earth.” 

Six Peace Poles in Gravenhurst Gull Lake Rotary Park have that message on them in multiple languages, including English, French, Ojibway, and Ukrainian, to name a few. 

The Peace Poles were designed by grade nine students at Gravenhurst High School. Aimée Bulloch watched over as the students undertook the project.

The Peace Poles were unveiled Thursday afternoon.  

Bulloch said at the start of the school year, Barb McCabe, Past President of the Rotary Club of Gravenhurst, reached out to her about the project. “It was a very easy project to teach,” she said. 

“It took a lot of challenging planning skills,” she added.
