Sigma Phi Rho Peace Pole Project
Organized by: Jordan Dejoie
EVENT DATE Sep 22, 2014
Sigma Phi Rho Fraternity Inc, Nu Chapter – Lehman College City University of New York, are planning to install peace and unity poles throughout campus to promote campus unity as well as beautify the surrounding campus.
Peace Pole Project:
“The Peace Pole Project is the official Project of The World Peace Prayer Society. It started in Japan in 1955 by Masahisa Goi, who decided to dedicate his life to spreading the message, "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in response to the bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Peace Poles are handcrafted monuments erected the world over as international symbols of Peace. Their purpose is to spread the message "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in the languages of the world”
For this project, there will be three peace poles with four different languages on each pole saying, “May Peace Prevail On Earth”. They will be positioned in a triangular shape, so that each corner of the triangle will have a peace pole standing. Each peace pole will be surrounded by dirt/flowers. In between each peace pole benches will be added that will be facing inwards. In the middle, bricks/tiles will be installed as well as a plaque dedicated by Sigma Phi Rho Fraternity Inc Nu chapter to the Lehman College Community
