There are more than 250,000 Peace Poles in nearly every country in the world, dedicated as monuments to peace. The Peace Plaza project at Wenatchee Rotary Park, has the Rotary Club of Wenatchee, Confluence Rotary and Sunrise Rotary partnering to construct the project in the summer of 2022. We have several grants already approved, and we are excited to share how you can contribute to this lasting testament to peace. 
The District 5060 Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) program is back!  The weekend of April 1-3 we held the annual “Outbound Training” where the students and their parents assembled in Penticton B.C. with the members of our RYE Committee under the direction of Chair Martha Kennedy of the R/C Kelowna Sunrise. They were a positive and energetic group, and the excitement with being able to return to some of the best programs of our pre-pandemic days was clear!  Make sure you encourage your club to participate in any way that you can with the program!
