President Dave Williamson presented a $3000 Check, on behalf of the Dayton Rotary Foundation to Rotarian Jerry Leggett and the Dayton International Peace Museum. The funds will be used as seed money to help expand their concept of a Peace Heroes Walk Around the World. After a successful local event here in Dayton the concept to expand to many cities through out our nation and around the world is being explored through partnering with local Rotary Clubs in those locales. This makes perfect sense as our Rotary International President has asked each club to establish a Peace Committee at their local level. The Peace Heroes Walk Around the World will promote peace literacy through the stories of Peace Heroes and help raise funds for Peace Leadership Education Programs in participating communities and for International programs such as the Rotary Peace Fellowships.
