Peace Pole Unveiling

The club in collaboration with Rotaract South Barbados, unveiled yet another Peace Pole on island. This time, at the Combermere School.

For those who may not be familiar with the significance of Peace Poles, they are powerful symbols of peace, echoing the profound message of unity and harmony. From the perspective of Rotary International, Peace Poles serve as timeless reminders of our commitment to promoting peace, not only within our local communities but across the globe.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our dedicated members and generous sponsors for their unwavering support of this impactful initiative. Together, we are making a meaningful difference in fostering a more peaceful and compassionate world.
