Pinwheels display peace

September 22, 2005

Valdosta - If you're driving down Bemiss Road, you may notice dozens of pinwheels along the highway.

It's part of Girl Scouts of America's annual "Pinwheels for Peace" project. Members of Troop 364 made the pinwheels and wrote what their idea of "whirled" peace was on the inside.

Troop leaders say its a way to show the girls know that even though they're young, their thoughts and actions can have an impact on the future.  "By giving thought to what peace is and putting it on display, they can make a difference and all build upon each other to somehow make a small change," said Ann Farmer, Troop Leader.

The pinwheels will be on display outside St. Barnabus Church on Bemiss Road through Sunday.
