Feeling creative?  Design a 12” X 18” poster for International Day of Peace using any medium of your choice. The contest sponsored by the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen runs from September 1 – 17.  Bring your entries to the Tsawwassen Library by 5 pm, Sunday, September 17.  Winners in each age category receive $100, with the winners in the youth and adult categories receiving free admission to the 2018 Rotary Peacebuilding Conference in Vancouver with keynote speaker David Suzuki (value over $200).  For more details, contact the Tsawwassen Library.

During the time leading up to International Day of Peace on Thursday, September 21, take a minute to say sorry to someone or something that has made you feel sad or regretful by writing it down and putting it in The Sorry Box.  This action may lead to inner peace and inner peace is a pathway to world peace.  All entries are anonymous and confidential.  Return to the library on the day between 3:30 pm – 5 pm for stories of Diversity and Peace followed by participants creating a giant peace sign made of people!  At 4:15 pm, the Sorry Box will be walked down to the Peace Pole in Rotary Square, Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall.  Join the walk to the Peace Pole for guest speakers, entertainment and refreshments.
