Why September 21st?
International Day of Peace (IDP) recognized by the United Nations occurs September 21 every year and is celebrated by many organizations around the world. Rotary WPP is hosting its third consecutive annual concert for peace, justice and human rights, once again. The goal is to have people in the heart of Canada, plant more seeds for peace, justice and human rights and to inspire more understanding and acts of kindness for the next 364 days following.
Vision For The Future
The vision of Rotary WPP is for this week, in future years, to have more and more venues and to plant, nurture and grow more and more seeds until a critical mass of people in the heart of Canada are setting an example for the world of peace, justice and human rights in action. The vision is to expand the audience, through the wonders of technology, throughout the planet, on request of Grassroots people anywhere, who want to become world peace partners with Rotary WPP through service and example.

Re: concert ticket distribution
Please confirm numbers of tickets you require before Sept 7th. Tickets will be distributed after that date - based on the number of tickets allocated to Spirit's Call Choir by Rotary WPP. If numbers requested exceed allotted tickets, a wait list will be created. Depending on number of tickets used by other partners inviting guests, additional tickets will likely be available for distribution by Sept 14th.
Please leave your contact information for follow up after September 7th with Margaret at firstname.lastname@example.org or 204-488-0078.
