Sorpotimist International of Fillmore receives Proclamation from City of Fillmore

In 1982 the United Nations proclaimed the International Day of Peace be “devoted to commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations.” In 2001 the United Nations expanded the observance of The International Day of Peace to include the call for a day of global cease fire and non-violence, and invited all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities for the duration of the day.
Sorpotimist asked the City of Fillmore to proclaim September 21, 2008 as International Day of Peace. With the cooperation of the City of Fillmore, Sorpotimist will be celebrating International Day of Peace on Sunday Sept. 21, 2008 in front of City Hall at 1:30 PM. The celebration will include the installation of a temporary Peace Pole with the word “PEACE” written in many different languages. Soroptimist, with the help of the Fillmore community, will install a permanent Peace Pole the following year. Be part of history and join Soroptimist in the 1st annual International Day of Peace celebration!
Sorpotimist is inviting the entire community, all service clubs, school clubs, and local congregations to join hands in an effort to commemorate this day. Let’s work towards converting humanity’s noblest aspirations for world peace into a practical reality for future generations.
Please contract Sarah Hansen (805) 524-0132 or Oralia Herrera (805) 524-6936 for additional information and/or questions about the celebration.
