Installation of Peace Pole, via scout Bradly, Train Station Lot, Tamaqua, 8-22-2015 (2)Boy Scout Bradley McAloose, from Tamaqua Troop 777, installed a Peace Pole recently along SR309 at the North Railroad Street/Train Station parking lot. There are tens of thousands of Peace Poles in 180 countries all over the world dedicated as monuments to peace.
McAloose has been working toward earning his Eagle Scout goal for many years. He has researched Peace Poles and decided since world peace is an important issue for himself, the boy scouts, the community and the world, to erect a Peace Pole and dedicate it to the community of Tamaqua. The pole will be registered with the International Peace Pole Society for the world to view.
The pole displays the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in four different languages: English, German, Italian and Gaelic.
– ENGLISH: “May Peace Prevail On Earth”
– GERMAN: “Möge Friede auf Erden sein”
– ITALIAN: “Che la pace regni sulla terra”
– IRISH GAELIC: “Go Raibh Síocháin Ar Somhain”
Installation of Peace Pole, via scout Bradly, Train Station Lot, Tamaqua, 8-22-2015 (4)McAloose said he believes the Peace Pole will be a constant reminder for the community to represent a peaceful attitude regarding any situation they may face, adding that each pole serves as constant reminders for us to visualize and pray for world peace.
The pole will be officially dedicated on Monday, September 21, 2015 (also known as the International Day of Peace) at 6:30 PM. During the dedication, McAloose will lead the Boy Scouts from Troop 777 in the final erection of the pole, moment of silence, and dedication. Event is rain or shine. All are welcome to attend.
