Members of the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen gathered last Thursday afternoon to celebrate World Peace Day.
Tsawwassen First Nation elder Ruth Adams was invited to give a prayer to commemorate the event, which took place around the peace pole in Rotary Square by the pond in Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall.
The annual event is celebrated on Sept. 21 to recognize the efforts of those that work to end conflict around the world and promote peace. To Rotary, peace not only means the absence of war, but having adequate food, shelter, health care, education, freedom and dignity.
The Tsawwassen club is involved in the Path to Health project, which supports health care for the rural poor in under developed countries.
