On September 21st Daybreak Rotary will celebrate the their second annual International Day of Peace with “Peace Week.”

“What we want to do is each day have a random act of kindness,” Former President of Daybreak Rotary, Maryjane Shackelford said. “So that we can build peace daily up into the International Day of Peace. Starting the 15th, we are kicking it off at Zane State Ohio University Zanesville’s fall festival.”

Each day has a special cause designated to it, for instance Friday, September 16th is “Teacher and Senior Citizen Appreciation Day”. Saturday is “Thank a First Responder Day”, and Sunday is “Pay It Forward Day”.

“We’re planning on having a walk at Zane State OUZ Campus. It will start at 11;45 a.m. all members of the community are invited. We want them to bring a non-perishable food item and we’ll collect those and give those to Christ’s Table that day,” Shackerlford said.
