The Rotary Club of Kenora's Peace Park is another step closer to reality after a major donation from the Kenora Hospitality Alliance (KHA).

$10,000 was donated last week by KHA bring the total raised for the Peace Park to over $60,000 of the $100,000 price tag.

Stefan Robinson, the Development Coordinator for KHA, was on hand for the cheque presentation and remarked how important it is to support local projects that enhance Kenora and help make it a travel destination.

The park, which is scheduled to open on October 4, 2021, will feature a granite four or six-sided Peace Pole with the phrase "may peace prevail on Earth" in English, French, Ojibway, Oji-Cree and if enough funds are raised in Ukrainian and German too.

A memorial monument to honour Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, Trans, and Two-Spirit individuals (MMIWGT2S), provided by the MMIWGT2S Memorial Committee, will also be placed in the park.

All donations to the Rotary Club's Peace Park, over $50, are eligible to receive a charitable tax receipt from the City of Kenora. 

The Rotary Peace Park is a partnership between the City of Kenora, the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Memorial Committee, and the Rotary Club of Kenora
