Peace Pole planted by Rotary in Hudson

Sep 21, 2012 12:47 am
A Peace Pole from the Hudson Rotary Club was dedicated on the green in Hudson's Public Square (park on Warren and Seventh St.), Thu., Sept. 20. The pole was a donation from the Hudson Rotary Club, and now designates Hudson as a City of Peace. WGXC's Jess Puglisi was there to record comments from Kieran Riley, Mike Howard (President of the Rotary Club and also a local attorney), Jeevan Goff (of Lotus Energy, and also a Rotary Club member), and Kristianna Abel. Hudson Mayor William Hallenbeck and the Rotary's Howard dedicated the pole, and their comments take up the last five minutes of audio. Friday, September 21, is International Day of Peace. There was a crowd of roughly 20 people present for the dedication, including some local peace activists, rotary members, and Rabbi David Fried. A group of local activists have been holding peace protests in the park on Saturdays the last 11 years since right after the Sept. 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center.
