  • Members of the Crookston Rotary Club and city officials gathered at Downtown Square during Ox Cart Days festivities Thursday to break ground on Peace Pole Park.
    The project is made possible by a $10,000 matching grant from Rotary International District 5580 and the Rotary Foundation. The project promotes “Peace and Service Above Self” and once it’s finished will include the poll surrounded by benches and greenery. The pole contains messages of peace in several different languages. An event to celebrate Peace Pole Park’s completion will be held on Sept. 21.
