September 21 is the International Day of Peace.The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly. Two decades later, in 2001, the General Assembly unanimously voted to designate the Day as a period of non-violence and cease-fire. Today this day inspires events all over the world. During the coming days Rotarians and clubs in our District will be acknowledging or celebrating Peace, and Rotary’s important role as leaders in Peacebuilding.  
Some of our Rotary work provides INTER-personal peace, as in conflict prevention/resolution.  However, much of our Rotary work provides INTRA-personal peace, bringing peace of mind to the recipients of our efforts.  Keeping in that in mind, here are just two examples that might inspire you with ideas for your club:
On Friday, September 18, the Rotary Club of Peoria will host the 3rdannual Pursuing Peace Conference, led by Club President Chuck Fitzgerald. 
On Sunday, September 20, the Rotary Club of Prescott-Frontier, led by Club member Robert Wertz, will help create a Peace-inspired labyrinth in a community park for the public to experience and enjoy. (Please see attached flyer - Click READ MORE
