Last Sunday we had a marvelous and heartfelt ceremony to commemorate International Peace Day in Rotary Park. Representatives from various faith communities came together under the banner of lasting peace to share each traditions ideas of Peace making. It was a beautiful Sunday and everyone shared this poignant reminder that Peace is a universal idea that transcends religions, cultures and traditions. The Greater Putnam Interfaith Council would like to thank all those involved and those who came to participate in our Annual event.
