“In today’s world, peace needs to become more than just a word,” that was the idea behind an art installation dubbed Pinwheels for Peace, started a decade ago in Florida by two art teachers.

On Sept. 21, the International Peace Day, the Rotary Club of Seymour-Oxford and SONCCA “planted” pinwheels depicting images of peace on the SONCCA offices lawn at 256 Bank Street in Seymour.

In the first year, groups in over 1,325 locations throughout the world were spinning pinwheels on Sept. 21— adding up to approximately 500,000 pinwheels spinning throughout the world.
