AmVets display Peace Pole

A Peace Pole stands outside the AmVets Post No. 28 building at 1317 S. 17th St. AmVets will dedicate the Peace Pole at 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29, said James Winkel this week. The 6-foot stainless steel pole is engraved with the word Peace in 20 different languages. Veterans for Peace asked the local AmVets if they would display the pole, and steel workers in Cedar Rapids created it, Winkel said. More than 200,000 poles are displayed in more than 200 countries.
