Peace Pole

Posted by Lorrie on Tuesday, 16 February 2010

Inspired by the search for a memorial gift in honor of Duke Foxx, loyal friend of First Pres. DP, a wooden peace pole will be created and set into the ground at the church. The pole will carry the message "May peace prevail on earth" in various languages and symbols. To honor Duke's musical talents, a measure or two of musical notes will convey in song the need for peace in our world. Peace begins with each and every one of us. May this simple gesture remind us all of our charge . . . to love one another.

Ongoing work planning, painting and preparing the 6x6 post continues.Dedication and planting of the pole is TBA 2010.

Keep watching for further developments. Call Lorrie 847-640-1863 to help with this fun and worthy project.
