PDG Rick Moore (Alamance Rotary Club - recently served as District Governor for Montana Rotary District 5390) shared the following with us . . .
All Rotarians are invited to join us for the annual Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park Assembly and Pledge of Peace
It began as a bold idea: Where no boundary could be seen,no boundary should be.
The Waterton Glacier International Peace Park is the first transboundary peace park in the world, envisioned by Rotarians from Canada and the USA and approved by both governments in 1932. Today it stands as a testament to the Rotary International focus on peace and the cooperation necessary to coexist as parks, nations or individuals. It combines the 203-square-mile Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada with the 1,600-square-mile Glacier National Park in the United States. The arrangement allows both national parks to operate as separate entities under the peace park mantle. Each September, the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park Association (WGIPPA) hosts a gathering at the peace park to learn about the park efforts, peace-building ideas and to pledge our continued work for peace.
This year, we are unable to host an in person gathering. But this gives us the opportunity to instead invite a wider audience to experience this inspiring and unique part of Rotary history.
You are invited to join us on Saturday, September 19 from 2-4 pm (Mountain Time) to hear a bit of the history of the peace park, the state of conservation in the area, speakers on peace, take the peace pledge with us, and meet Rotarians from around the area in fellowship and peace.
There is no cost for the event but we ask you to visit https://wgippa2020.eventbrite.com to find the agenda, more information and register.
