This is the new information Cyberhub for Rotary Peace Cities in Thailand, Philippines, Asia and around the world.
HISTORY OF THE ROTARY PEACE CITY AND ROTARY PEACE SYMBOL PROJECTS
The Rotary Peace City Project and the (then) Rotary Peace Symbol
Project were introduced to the 1993 Melbourne World Rotary
Convention by Past President Tony Quinlivan. This program originally
initiated out of the Rotary Club of Wagga Wagga - Kooringal
D9700 in 1992, where the City of Wagga Wagga, New South Wales,
Australia, was the first declared Rotary Peace City in the
world.... Now there are over sixty Rotary Peace Cities.
Having had a long association with the Philippines, back in
the mid 90's we had the honor of taking the Program to Manila in the
Philippines, where around the time of
the celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the Rotary Club of
Manila, (Chartered by the Rotary Club of Seattle, Washington
State) the City of Manila, Philippines, became the first declared
International Rotary Peace City - declared on Manila Foundation
Day by Rotarian Mayor Alfredo Lim, former Police Commander of
the Western Police District.... by Rotarian Geoffrey Little - Dean of Rotary Peace Ambassadors.
