Peace Pole going in at Kelsey Scott Park

The Covenant Community Connection will plant the fifth peace pole in Rowan County Saturday during Let’s Get Connected Day at Kelsey Scott Park.
With the theme “Just Imagine…A World at Peace,” the festival of faith will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Performances will include the Community Choir under the direction of Dr. Phillip Burgess and the Drum and Dance team from Salisbury High School under the direction of Sakinah Riley.
A sub-group of the Salisbury Rowan Human Relations Council, the Covenant Community Connection is sponsoring the eight annual Let’s Get Connected Day.
The event will feature presentations of art and essay contest winners, as well as free hot dogs and hamburgers. The highlight of the celebration is the Circle of Prayer at noon.
Kelsey Scott Park is located at 1920 Old Wilkesboro Road. Everyone is welcome.
