Residents to decide peace pole's design

        ANDERSON TOWNSHIP — The winning peace pole design will be selected during the Greater Anderson Promotes Peace (GAPP) speaker's series Oct. 12 at Anderson Hills Christian Church.

        The final design will be one of three selected by residents at the 7:30 p.m. meeting at the church, 8119 Clough Pike.

        Louise Lawarre, a co-founder of GAPP, said the three designs were selected this summer by a panel of artists, park board and township officials and have been on display throughout the township in churches, schools, parks and libraries.

        “We wanted the residents to look at the three final designs and make the selection,” Mrs. Lawarre said.

        GAPP was formed last year after hate literature was distributed in the township and swastikas were painted on the home of a Jewish family.

        “We felt we had to do something to show what we were against and to show that we stand for values and a strong community,” Mrs. Lawarre said.

        “We will start a fund drive to get enough money to have the pole erected, hopefully by spring of next year,” said Sue Goldberg, co-chair of the Peace Pole Project.

        The pole will be erected in Veterans Park on Forest Road, near Eight Mile Road.

        Residents may view the designs after services at St. Timothy Episcopal Church, 8101 Beechmont Ave., on Sunday and at Mount Washington Presbyterian Church, 6474 Beechmont Ave., on Oct. 8.

        Organizers said the designs also will be shown on Anderson Cable, Channel 15, beginning todayat 6 p.m. with instructions on how to vote for a design.

        The event also will kick off the fall speaker's series, featuring diversity trainer Reginald Butler. His topic will be “diversity tools and resources.”
