 Canton set to celebrate new Heritage Park Peace Pole Plaza

The Heritage Park Peace Pole Plaza will be dedicated Thursday, Aug. 3, at 6:15 p.m.

A dedication ceremony for Canton Township’s first Peace Pole Plaza will unfold Thursday night, Aug. 3, at 6:15 in Heritage Park.

A Peace Pole is an internationally-recognized symbol of the hopes and dreams of the entire human family, standing vigil in silent prayer for peace on earth, according to WorldPeace.org.

Each Peace Pole bears the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in different languages on each of its four or six sides.

There are an estimated 250,000 Peace Poles in the world dedicated as monuments to peace.

Thursday’s ceremony will be held prior to Canton’s “National Night Out” event, which will also take place in Heritage Park from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Entertainment will follow

In addition, the Thursday Night LIVE Concert — featuring the Oneders performing a variety of songs by one-hit wonders — is slated to begin at 7 p.m. at the Heritage Park Amphitheater.

Canton’s Peace Pole bears the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in 12 of the most commonly spoken languages in Canton Township: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Gujarati, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Punjabi, Spanish, and Urdu.

The Peace Pole Plaza has been transformed into a welcoming space with beautiful landscaping that was made possible with donor support provided by Iltefat Hamzavi, MD FAAD – Hamzavi/Dermatology Specialists; and Pilz Automation Safety, L.P.

Additional contributions were provided by Geneva Presbyterian Church, St. Thomas a’Becket Catholic Church, and the Rotary Club of Canton.
