The tomb could not hold him -Acts 3:15 Death has been defeated.
My Lord Has Risen! Thank you for Our Salvation! Amen!
The summer between my Junior and Senior year, I got a 1971 hand me down green Volkswagen from my older sister. It was a 3-speed on the floor and I thought I was so cool because I had my own ride and independence.
I only drove this car for a few month when it broke down and to fix it was more than the car was worth. I ended up selling it to a Volkswagen salvage yard.
Those days of independence were so special!
Come One Come All ~ On Wednesday, May 24, 2017 at 12:00 P.M., the Rotary Club of Jasper will dedicate our Peace Pole. The dedication ceremony will be held at Rotary Peace Park located behind the Boys and Girls Club of Jasper.
The GPS address is 101 Freedom Way, Jasper, Georgia.
One of Rotary Internationals’ primary areas of focus is the promotion of peace throughout the world.
Peace Poles are recognized as the most prominent international symbol and monument for peace. They symbolize the oneness of humanity and our common wish for a world at peace.
Peace Poles bear the message, “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in the different languages of the world.
In considering a Peace Pole for their park, the Rotary Club of Jasper recognized the unique opportunity available to us as the home of Georgia Marble. Our Peace Pole was manufactured locally by Blue Ridge Marble and carved from the same marble as was used in Washington, DC to build the Lincoln Memorial.
Placed on a marble base, our monument totals ten ft. in height. On each of the four sides of the pole, two different languages will display the Peace Pole message of, “May Peace Prevail on Earth” for a total of eight different languages. Our Peace Pole displays English, Cherokee, French, Esperanto, Spanish, German, Italian and Russian languages.
2017 will also mark the 100th year of the beginning of the Rotary Foundation. This Peace Pole will serve to commemorate that event for the Rotary Club of Jasper.
Be sure to mark your calendar and be a part of something spectacular here in Jasper Pickens County GA.

Since we’re on the discussion of Spring, I want to talk about these beautiful Cherry trees which are/were a focal point in Bent Tree on my way home. Oh how I’ve enjoyed watching them bloom every Spring BUT they are no longer there…they have been cut down and I haven’t learned why.
So very sad. 🙁
