Hello Ms. Ann Marie Robustelli,
Attached are photographs of our Peace Pole, planted on October 16th, 2010 in honor of a member of our church, Bob Witkowski, a dedicated peace advocate who passed away in May, 2010. We placed the Peace Pole where most people will see it upon entering our sanctuary.
The pole has 8 languages represented on it: English, Japanese, Swahili (two members are anthropologists who have worked in Africa and speak Swahili), Arabic and Hebrew, Hindi, Spanish, and Delaware (for the native people who once lived in this region).
