Peace Pole event slated
Canby City Manager Rick Robinson's announcement regarding the dedication of a "Peace Pole" was one of the more interesting aspects of the April 4 Canby City Council meeting.
The pole will be dedicated on Friday, April 13, at the plaza next to the Canby Public Library behind the flag pole. The Peace Pole is a worldwide effort to spread peace to all people and backgrounds. Each pole is designed with the saying "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in four languages.
Canby's pole will have four languages, one on each of the sides.
The hand-crafted Peace Poles have been established all over the world in up to 170 languages, some with various and native dialects.
