Maryborough Rotary Peace Pole Dedication, Maryborough, Queensland – AUSTRALIA

For September 21, 2022

Brolga Theatre 5 Walker Street, Maryborough, Queensland,  Australia.

On the International Day of Peace, celebrate the dedication of a unique Peace Pole, conceived to celebrate our past, our present, and our future as we move forward together.

A Peace Pole is a hand-crafted monument that displays the message ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth’ on each of its sides, usually in different languages.

The Maryborough Peace Pole, a project of the Rotary Club of Maryborough Sunrise, was designed by local artist and Rotarian Willy Paes with assistance from Fraser Coast Regional Council Senior Arts Development Co-ordinator Trevor Spohr.

The project was supported by many businesses, other Rotary Clubs through a Rotary Grant, and the Fraser Coast Regional Council through a grant from the discretionary fund of Cr Daniel Sanderson.

The short dedication ceremony will be followed by light refreshments.
