We at Veterans For Peace are most appreciative of the support we’ve had over the years and we are very grateful for that. Our current endeavor involves Peace Poles.
It is estimated that there are over 200,000 Peace Poles in the world on every continent that have been planted over many decades.
It is the intention of Veterans For Peace Chapters to plant several Peace Poles throughout Eastern Iowa. To this end, we ask for your donations.
We have two Peace Pole materials to consider. One is made from 4 inch square stainless steel tubing with laser cut lettering. It will last for centuries and costs about $500 each. The other is solid treated wood of approximately the same dimensions with engraved lettering. It will last for decades and costs about $100 each. Enclosed are photos the the metal Peace Pole the City of Iowa City agreed to plant on the Ped Mall near the Library.
Please consider sponsoring the placement of one of these poles or bundling donations from a group of people you know. Our intention is to work with sponsors for location and pole messaging to make your pole unique. Contributions of any amount are appreciated. Many small donations combined with others can result in a placement.. Please mail your contribution to VFP 161, PO Box 947, Iowa City IA, 52244-0947.
Thank you from the members of Veterans For Peace, Chapter 161, John Jadryev, President (319-430-2019).
