Schedule Change! The ceremony will begin at 1:30 p.m., not at noon. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
The Peace Pole in Beacon which was stolen (see the previous post), will be replaced this coming Saturday, October 17, 2009. Thanks to the efforts of Phil Sauers, Fumi Johns of the World Peace Prayer Society, and Gloria Waslyn and the “Parrots for Peace”, a “Peace Team” will be on hand from noon until 2:00 p.m. to replace the Peace Pole in a new ceremony. The following email is from Phil Sauers:
Peace Team (coined by Fumi Johns) — We already have a replacement “Peace Pole”. It’s @ the Beacon Sloop Club. It was donated to the Club by the “Parrots For Peace” months ago & has yet to be “planted” for whatever reasons. I have just spoken with Gloria Waslyn & she said the “Parrots For Peace” would love to give it to us & suggested we “plant” it in the exact big hole next Saturday 10/17 on the Northwest corner of 9 & 9D of the “Hudson Valley POW / MIA Memorial Highway” between Noon & 2pm during our weekly “Peace Vigil”, if that’s OK with everybody then that’s the plan, OK? Thank you everyone for your immediate & sincere enthusiasm to replace the “Peace Pole” as soon as possible. Thanks to the “Parrots For Peace” we can do it next Saturday.
