LAKEPORT, Calif. – Six members of the Clear Lake Trowel and Trellis Garden Club recently attended the dedication of a statue commemorating the beginning of “The Summer of Peace” celebration in Lake County.
The statue was installed within one of two planters in Lakeport’s Library Park that the club maintains as part of its Civic Beautification Project, led by member Mary Secord.
The “Summer of Peace 2012” is a three-month celebration throughout the world culminating in a “Universal Day of Peace” on Sept. 21.
The Lake County Board of Supervisors as well as the cities of Lakeport and Clearlake have all voted to make The Summer of Peace “official projects” and the Transition Lake County organization is spearheading local events throughout the summer associated with the celebration.
