Verdict: Jury finds St. Marie guilty on all counts

First Congregational to host peace pole

International Peace Day is Sept. 21, and First Congregational United Church of Christ in Wadena plans to join the worldwide celebration by dedicating a peace pole.

A peace pole is a hand-crafted monument that displays a message and prayer, "May peace prevail on Earth," on each of its six sides. The Wadena version will display the message in six languages: English, German, Norwegian, Finnish, Swedish and Ojibwe.

The service will be at 6 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 21 on the south side of the Church (on Colfax Ave.), near the entrance to the education wing. Everyone is invited to attend.
