Peace Poles

   

Beaverton area Peace Poles

Partnerships with local schools and organizations such as the Jubitz Foundation got the wheels turning to place peace poles around the Beaverton area. The peace poles are inscribed with ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth.’ This inscription can be translated into four or eight languages and printed on the sides of the peace poles. There are peace poles at several Beaverton schools (Beaverton HS, Westview HS, Elmonica, Oak Hills), City Hall plaza, at the City Park near the library pedestrian crossing, and the Denney Gardens Habitat for Humanity neighborhood. Coming in 2021, peace poles will be dedicated at the new Beaverton Public Safety Center and the Allen Estates Habitat for Humanity neighborhood.

International Peace Poles

The Rotary Club of Beaverton recently co-sponsored with Eastern Europe Rotary clubs to place the first Peace Pole in Moscow, Russia, and another in Yekaterinburg in the Urals region. More peace poles are being planned for St. Petersburg and Moscow.

More collaborations are being planned with Rotary Clubs in Russia, Latvia, the Middle East and Washington, D.C.
