PHILIPSBURG--May 31 will be a historic moment for the Rotary Clubs of St. Maarten and French St. Martin and indeed for the island itself when the new Rotary Peace Monument will be unveiled.

The ceremony will start at 10:00am with a Peace Procession from the Salt Pickers roundabout behind the police station to the Philipsburg Jubilee Library where the unveiling ceremony will commence.

The objectives of the Rotary Peace Monument are as follows: * To promote a healthy and peaceful environment among the people of St. Maarten/ St. Martin in general, and the youth in particular, without any distinction of color, race, gender, social background or religious beliefs. * To promote the quality of life of the community at large by providing healthy, productive and meaningful opportunities for interaction based on moral ethics and principles. * To improve the social welfare of the youth with special emphasis through educational lectures, social activities and the like. * To promote community development and partnership and mobilize youths towards community building.

All members of the public are invited to attend, and Rotary President Angela Gordon for Rotary Sunrise said that she particularly hopes that members of community councils and cultural organizations will attend, as well as young people.“It has proved difficult to get hold of each organization individually, but I would like to take this opportunity to welcome members of all communities to attend the opening for this monument, which is designed to bring cultures together, and to free St. Maarten from any type of violence. I would particularly encourage young people to attend,” Gordon told the Daily Herald.
