As a part of the official dedication of the Healing Garden at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center the Rotary Club of Three Creeks' very first Peace Pole will be dedicated.
The Healing Garden dedication event is set for, Thursday, Sept. 20 beginning at 3:30 p.m. at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center, third floor.
A Peace Pole is a hand-crafted monument that displays the message and prayer “May Peace Prevail on Earth”, on each of its four or six sides, usually in different languages.
There are tens of thousands of Peace Poles in 180 countries all over the world dedicated as monuments to peace. They serve as constant reminders for us to visualize and pray for world peace.
Our Peace Pole at Legacy is meaningful in many other ways, as well. It's a recognition of the peace that healthcare brings to the world, in a beautiful place of respite at the hospital. It also represents thanks to Legacy Salmon Creek for being a supporter of our club from the very beginning.
