2014 District 6930 World Peace Initiative

Dr. Wesley Boughner, Chair

“Make Your Club a World Peace Community!

In 2010, Past District Governor Leo Phillips, signed a proclamation to adopt the “District 6930 World Peace Initiative.” This year Governor Arthur Hodge encourages all clubs to take the initiative in their communities to promote peace and to create, or adopt, significant peace projects either locally or internationally, that promote Rotary’s concepts of world peace consciousness, conflict resolution or cultural understanding. This Initiative is non-denominational, non-political and non-ethnic and it is an integral part at the grass roots level of our Foundation’s commitment to promoting world peace and multicultural understanding.

Mission Statement:

To promote peace consciousness in our communities and around the world by having all our clubs earn a “District 6930 World Peace Community Certificate” this Rotary year!
