VIDEO: Peace Pole, benches dedicated at Our Lady of Guadalupe

As noted here Saturday, the Rotary Club of West Seattle has now placed five Peace Poles around West Seattle, part of a worldwide initiative.

That plaque honoring the Duwamish Tribe is on a bench made by Eagle Scout Nick Krum:

He explained the project to those gathered for the dedication:

The space with the pole and benches is in front of the church on 35th SW south of SW Myrtle.

    Congratulations to the Rotary Club and the OLG parish on a job well done. Having a space for peace and recognising the Duwamish people is an inspiration for us all!

    Way to go Nick. Let me tell you that Nick is a great Scout and role model to the younger Scouts in the Troop.
