A pole will be “planted” Saturday outside the Watertown Free Public Library to promote harmony and collaboration.

The eight sided pole will have the word Peace written on it in the eight most common languages in Watertown, said Town Councilor Tony Palomba. There are 50 languages spoken in Watertown and others will be recognized on the base of the pole.

Along with the pole, a planter will be installed. The flowers were donated, Palomba said, and the area will be taken care of by the library staff.

The pole is sponsored by the Watertown Free Public Library, Project Literacy, Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice and the Environment, World in Watertown and The Institute for Individual and World Peace.

The event will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on April 26. There will be songs and sing alongs, too.

  1. What a wonderful idea. Instead of promoting healing and resilience through beating our chests or sustaining an ‘us and them’ attitude, I think it is so nice to promote peace and the beauty of different cultures. Go, Watertown!
