Thursday, September 21 is designated as The International Day of Peace and many of us will gather at our Windsor Peace Pole at 12:00 PM (Noon).  The Peace Pole is located at the south end of the Treasure Island Garden on 7th Street.

All who gather will have a moment to reflect on what peace means to them. There will be a short ceremony and a reading of the sentences on the pole - “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in four different languages. These languages - English, German, Russian, and Spanish) were chosen to reflect Windsor’s heritage. 

The International Day of Peace ("Peace Day") is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.
