•    The First peace symposium
•    Zone 34
Zone 34 is organizing its first Peace Symposium in Atlanta in honor of Rotary International President Tanaka’s theme, Peace Through Service.

The symposium will be:

•    Renaissance Concourse
•    Atlanta Airport Hotel
•    One Hartsfield Centre Pkwy
•    Atlanta, Georgia 30354

•    Saturday, February 23, 2013
•    8:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

A very exciting preliminary program has been arranged by Co-Chairs PDG Betsy Owen (District 6930) and Margie Kersey (District 6900).

Among the events will be

•    talks by a Peace Fellow and other peace speakers
•    a "peace dance” performed by an African American troupe
•    Interact and Rotaract Clubs presenting their peace projects
•    a video displaying the peace projects of the clubs of Zone 34  

We will be planting a peace pole - which will welcome the visitors to the 2017 Rotary International Convention at the Atlanta Airport to symbolize our present and future commitment to the peace initiative.
The Symposium committee will be planning the details.  We are asking you or your appointee to work with the committee to ensure that there is a big contingency from your district in attendance.  We are looking forward to seeing you and your District’s members in Atlanta on February 23 to join in the festivities to celebrate Peace Through Service.

Registration information will be forthcoming from Betsy and Margie soon.

Yours in Rotary Service
RID Anne Matthews
