"May Peace Prevail on Earth"
The Rotary Club of Milwaukie recently installed our club's latest "Peace Pole" on the campus of Willamette View in our club's continuing efforts to support Rotary International's on-going Peacebuilding Club mission to support projects that promote peace and conflict resolution, involves youth in peace projects and provides financial assistance to the Rotary Peace Centers that train Rotary Peace Fellows and Rotary Peace Scholars.
The "Peace Pole" Project began in the mid-1950s by Mr. Mashisa Goi, of Japan, whose family was greatly affected by WWII. Mr. Goi dedicated his life to spreading the idea “may peace prevail on Earth.” There have been over 200,000 Peace Poles planted, worldwide, and there are Peace Poles planted in nearly every nation on Earth. District 5100 is the most active Rotary district in the world and the Rotary Club of Milwaukie has installed dozens of "Peace Poles" throughout the city of Milwaukie and surrounding community that include schools, city buildings & private business.
If you or your organization would like to learn more about our club's efforts to promote peace or would like to host a "Peace Pole", please contact our "Peacebuilding" committee:
