The Rotary Club of Western Johnson County and the Rotary Club of Lenexa have teamed up to promote peace throughout the Lenexa community. The two clubs worked with the City of Lenexa and the Lenexa Arts Council to create the Peace Poles Community Art Project. This project is a series of Peace Poles designed by community artists with messages specific to peace. The poles are exhibited in Sar Ko Par Trails Park now through Fall of 2021 to promote peace, hope, and creativity throughout the community.
After exhibiting, the Peace Poles will be auctioned at City Hall on the evening of November 12.
Auction proceeds and sponsorships will support the Project 1020, Johnson County’s only shelter for adults who are experiencing homelessness. Project 1020 provides transportation to and from the shelter, a hot evening meal, grab-and-go breakfast in the morning, safe place to sleep, care, compassion and support for Johnson County’s homeless.
