Past District 6930 Governor Steve Laine is leading our club in a plan to celebrate the International Day of Peace with Florida Atlantic University Saturday afternoon September 21, 2019.
 
In preparation for Peace Day, Mayor Scott Singer stopped in to provide our club a special proclamation on behalf of the City of Boca Raton.  The special proclamation recognized all of the six Rotary Clubs in Boca Raton for their contribution as leaders locally and globally in working towards peace throughout the world.  Click here and scroll down to see content of proclamation.   
 
The International Day of Peace ("Peace Day") is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.
 
The Peace Day Event will be held on FAU Boca Raton campus and will offer two sessions: a morning session expecting mostly students from 10:30 to 11:50 am including video streaming of the 2019 Merida, Mexico Nobel Peace Laureate Summit Plenary Session 6 "The Power of Law vs The Law of Power;" and the evening session from 4:30 - 8 pm including welcoming thoughts from Doug as well as Rotary District 6930 Governor, Dance portraying Nonviolence, and streaming connection with Merida, Yucatan, Mexico for the Awards and Final Declaration for 2019.
