Bells and Poles for Peace (Aired on October 4 & 5, 2014)
Newburgh Rotarian Doug Martin Sturomski, the recently appointed Peace Chair of Rotary District 7210, is interviewed about his efforts to help reach the peace goal of Rotary International and the Rotary Foundation through Peace Bells and Peace Poles. His Peace Bell Foundation, started in 2009, emphasizes the connection between ringing bells and freedom and peace, while he has become one of the most enthusiastic promoter of the Peace Pole. A Peace Pole is a large pole that carries the message “may peace prevail on Earth” in eight languages. In addition to the interview, listeners can also hear Doug play a little Beethoven on the bells.
