Our Rotary District’s Peace Ambassador (Aired on May 12 and 13, 2018)
Greater Newburgh Rotarian Doug Sturomski, the unofficial Peace Ambassador for Rotary District 7210, returns to RadioRotary to report on two projects related to his peace mission. In this interview, he announces that he recently has dedicated or planted 10 Peace Poles at local schools. The Peace Poles for Rotary District 7210 are 8-feet high, resemble the Washington Monument, and have the message “May Peace prevail upon the Earth” in 8 languages. Another District peace project that he describes is the “Walk for Peace and Polio” at the Walkway over the Hudson, which not only promoted peace but also raised money to support the eradication of polio, one of the main goals of The Rotary Foundation in recent years.
