Ste. Gen Rotary Club commissions mural for World Peace Day

STE. GENEVIEVE – The Ste. Genevieve Rotary Club joined Rotary clubs around the world last

Wednesday, Sept. 21 and participated in World Peace Day.


The local club had a mural painted on the wall of their meeting room at Country Mart’s Party Room.

Joy French is the local artist that turned a message of peace into art.


It was Rotary’s hope that the occasion of World Peace Day would shine the light and possibility of peace to those with whom you encounter—at school, at work, while you are out and about, and in

your own home.


Peace begins with us.


The club hosted an open house with refreshments for the community to view the mural as French was putting on the finishing touches.
