Description

Join us on the International Day of Peace, Saturday, September 21st from 10:00am – 12:00pm. Mercer Island will be holding the 1st Annual “Walk for Peace." (We recommend arriving at 9:30am for parking).




About this Event

The Rotary Club of Mercer Island is committed to contributing to Rotary International’s mission of non-violent conflict resolution, education about peaceful solutions and devotion to cross-cultural harmony.

We will hold the opening ceremonies promptly at 10:00am at the Rotary Park on Mercer Island and then participants will be given the choice of 3 different walking paths that connect 20 6' Peace Poles. At each of the poles on the path, volunteers will be sharing “Peace Quotes” with every participant.

It’s going to be a poignant and moving experience. We will be releasing doves, the ultimate symbol of peace at the conclusion of the Opening Ceremonies. We invite you to bring your family, friends and neighbors with you!

Use the map below to choose the walk you would like to take.
