Bahá’ís of Hendersonville will dedicate the Hendersonville Peace Garden and International Peace Pole on Sunday, Oct. 27, 3-5 p.m. at the Hendersonville Peace Garden in Memorial Park.  The event will include speakers, music, children's activities and refreshments. 

To celebrate the Bicentenary of the birth of The Báb, the Prophet/Herald of their Faith, the Bahá’ís of Hendersonville have partnered with the City Parks Department to create a twin garden with benches, tree and flowers, as well as the addition of an International Peace Pole. 

The Peace Pole Project, a global effort to recognize humanity's longing for peace, now has poles in 180 countries displaying the message: May Peace Prevail on Earth. The Hendersonville pole displays this message in eight languages including - Cherokee, in honor of Tennessee's Native American story, and Japanese to recognize Hendersonville's Sister City Tsuru in Japan.
