An open house event was hosted by Rick Lukens, Architects of a New Dawn at the Craneway Pavilion on March 11th to introduce this state of the art venue. A Peace Pole was displayed at the entrance way to the event surrounded by 192 Nation Flags. Guests gravitated around the Peace Pole and resonated with the message, May Peace Prevail On Earth, which became a focal point of the evening’s event.
