Heirisson Happenings

Hi Folks, 

Last week.....
 
 
We heard from Jeremy Wood from Cambridge Rotary on the subject of Peace Poles. (Pic by Allan)
 

The Peace Pole program had its beginnings in 1955. You can now find Peace Poles in close to 200 countries and more than 200,000 have been placed around the World. Our aim is to distribute 100 Peace Poles for 100 years of Rotary sponsored by 100 Rotary Clubs, with each pole will be numbered 1 to 100.

Peace Poles are planted with the Universal Peace Message “May Peace Prevail on Earth”. They symbolise our common wish for a World at Peace. They stand as a silent vigil for peace reminding us to think and act in the spirit of Peace. The Peace message is written in four languages one panel on each side of the Peace Pole.

 
A SPECIAL MESSAGE ABOUT OUR PARTNER SCHOOL GIRRAWHEEN SHS
 
Girrawheen Senior High School invites you to attend their Annual Visual Arts Exhibition. This year’s title is Catalyst 2021.
 
The exhibition will feature visual artwork produced by secondary school students throughout 2021, as well as selected works produced by Year 5 and 6 students from surround primary schools. There will be awards presented for both primary school and secondary school categories at the opening event on Thursday 4th November at 5pm.
 
We hope to see you there supporting the artists, viewing the artwork and enjoying some light refreshments. Please RSVP by Monday 25th October.
 
So far, President Don and Allan will be attending the opening on 4th November, please give some thought to joining them. Although RSVP date is now one day overdue please let Don or Allan know straight away to be included.
