"May Peace Prevail on Earth"
Raising Peace in Santa Cruz
~ Saturday, March 22nd * Join us at 2pm ~ Live Oak Grange ~
'Green' Grange will raise Live Oak’s first Peace Pole - This pole joins more than two hundred thousand across the world that echo the message "May Peace Prevail on Earth" ~ The Grange Peace pole is six-sided (locally carved reclaimed old growth redwood!). May Peace Prevail on Earth appears in English then Japanese, Russian, Spanish, and Italian: for all of our Sister Cities (and our new Cuban Sister County).

Our Sister Cities are:
{Alushta, Ukraine}{Jinotepe, Nicaragua}{Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela}{Sestri Levante, Italy}{Shingu, Japan}
And our newest Sister Alianza de Guama y Santa Cruz Alliance of Guama and Santa Cruz: "AGuaS"

In the course of a highly colorful afternoon, besides the Peace Pole dedication ceremony, the aim is to bring a quintessential flavor of all of our 'Sisters' ~ those drawn to be a part of this event are invited to bring a food (finger food or dish) or dress, pictures or photos, music/ tongue of each or any ~ or a real live friend who fits the bill(!) Come and bring them for the edification of your fellow Santa Cruzans..

And if every place on our Sister map is entirely a mystery to you, determine to learn and bring one printed factoid to add to the fascinating material already gleaned and gathered. Food, music, and community-building will be served! This is a celebration of the richly interwoven fabric of our lives.

On the sixth side of the Peace Pole, "May Peace Prevail on Earth appears in Arabic for Iraq ~ 'cradle of civilization'.
