OREGON CITY - The Rotary Club of Oregon City, in collaboration with Clackamas Community College, has installed a Peace Pole on the college’s Oregon City campus – the first peace pole in the city. 

A dedication ceremony is set for Wednesday, May 31, at 4 p.m., in the plaza outside the Wacheno Welcome Center. The event is open to the public and will include a short dedication and reading of a peace poem.

The peace pole is an internationally recognized symbol bearing the message "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in different languages on each of its four sides. There are more than 250,000 peace poles across the world. The peace poles are intended to unite people of different cultures, faiths and ideals to celebrate humanity and manifest peace on earth.
