In a remarkable display of unity, the Rotary Club of Honolulu gathered to dedicate not one, but two Peace Poles at Palama Settlement. These symbolic monuments carry the powerful message "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in 16 different languages, celebrating the rich diversity of the community, including four Micronesian languages making their debut appearance on a Peace Pole.
In a powerful demonstration of their commitment to peacebuilding, the Rotary Club of Honolulu joined hands to plant two Peace Poles at Palama Settlement, located at 810 North Vineyard in Honolulu. The Peace Pole, adorned with the inclusive message "May Peace Prevail on Earth," stands tall as a universal reminder of unity and harmony.
Lyla Berg, Immediate Past President of the Rotary Club of Honolulu, and Rick Tabor, Club Youth Service Director, spearheaded the inspiring project. The Peace Poles represent a collaborative effort of their club, showcasing the club's dedication to fostering peace among people of diverse cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
