The Rotary Peace through Service Garden is a living memorial dedicated January 11, 2014 by the Rotary Clubs of Cambria and the American Legion. This collaborative effort was created to beautify the area surrounding the Veteran’s Memorial Building parking area for the enjoyment of Cambria residents, as well as visitors to our town. It honors those in our community who have helped to preserve peace in our nation through their service in the armed services.
It was inspired by Rotary International’s (RI) quest for world “Peace through Service” to mankind, RI’s theme for the year 2012-2013. With grateful appreciation to the Cambria Community Services District and the County of San Luis Obispo for donation of the Peace Garden site and the adjacent sidewalk, a Rotary International Grant and several local supporters and donors, as well as many hours of donated time and labor, this project reached completion. There is a large Monument Plaque near the entrance of the Garden that thanks the many donors that made this Garden possible.
