Georgia Rotarians will gather at Rotary Peace Poles across the state on Monday, Sept. 21, to recognize the International Day of Peace. 

The Rotary Club of Winder will gather at the Rotary International Peace Pole located at the Barrow County School System's Center for Innovative Teaching (CFIT) at 10:30 a.m. Monday.

Rotary District 6910 is asking all Rotary clubs across Georgia and the world to participate "to demonstrate the positive changes that occur when people unite in good faith to serve humanity," organizers said. 

A Peace Pole is an internationally-recognized symbol of the hopes and dreams of the entire human family, standing vigil in silent prayer for peace on Earth, according to a news release. Each Peace Pole bears the message May Peace Prevail on Earth in different languages on each of its four sides.

The four languages on the Winder Club’s Peace Pole include English, Spanish, Cherokee and Japanese. There are tens of thousands of Peace Poles in nearly every country in the world dedicated as monuments to peace, according to the release.

Due to coronavirus concerns, Monday's gathering will be limited.
