Peace Pole and Peace Education/Advocacy Project Comes to Guemes Sept 21
Guemes Island artist Bob Anderson is bringing this inspirational project to the island. Bob hopes that over the coming months interested residents, local artists and island organizations will join him in creating their own unique "Peace Pole" to be placed around the island. This project is just one part of a year-long peace-education and advocacy project.
On Friday, September 21 at 7:00 p.m. at the Labyrinth near the Church, islanders will gather for an Equinox/Peace Celebration to inaugurate this project. The 21st is also the United Nations International Day of Peace. Bring short appropriate readings or poetry to share as well as lanterns, luminarias and candles. Information will be available regarding design and construction of your Peace Pole.
Contact Bob Anderson 360-293-3770 or email@example.com for more information.
