Peace Pole and Flag Ceremony

On September 19, 2007, a Peace Pole was dedicated at Dallas City Hall and planted in front of the Dallas Convention Center, on Marilla between Field and Akard. Suzanna Brown, a Peace Conference volunteer coordinator, organized the events with the assistance of City of Dallas officials: Mary Suhm, Jack Ireland, and Deborah Shelby-Bunton.

The Peace Pole was presented to the City of Dallas by Paula Christine of The World Peace Prayer Society, headquartered in New York. Ms Christine also conducted the Peace Flag Ceremony with the help of the girls of the third grade class of Hockaday School, Dallas, Texas.
