Our club helped Simi Valley become an International City of Peace. To encourage residents to promote peace in their lives and in the community, Simi Valley students were invited to design hand-painted rocks with uplifting words and art.  More than 400 rocks highlighting themes of peace and hope were placed at Corriganville Park. International Cities of Peace defines peace as the consensus values of safety, prosperity and quality of life for all people in the community.  The City of Simi Valley and its police department, school district and Chamber of Commerce, along with our two other Rotary Clubs, soroptimist International Simi Valley and the For the Need Foundation, all partnered in this effort to create an atmosphere of tolerance, foster a culture of goodwill through education and promote sustainable economic and social development in the community.
