Peace Pole Dedication - “May Peace Prevail on Earth”  IMGP0023

On Saturday, November 16, 2013, the Peace Pole in the pocket park on the corner of E Johnson Ave & N Columbia St was dedicated.  This natural sculpture of columnar basalt engraved with the phrase “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in eight laguages.  Pictured:  Larry Epstein, Hebrew; Mary Murphy, Tibetan; Mayor Bob Goedde, English; John Sirois, Okanagan Tirbes; Norma Gallegos, Spanish; Leland Yialelis, Greek; Gale Courtney, Polish; and Husam Alsarama, Arabic.  Rotarian Concie Luna rang a gong for each language read and made the Peace Poles happen in Chelan.
