Rockford group works to bring 'peace' to city

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

There is an effort underway to have Rockford become known as a "City of Peace."

For more than 10 years, Rockford has celebrated International Day of Peace in September.  

More than 40 groups provide a wide variety of activities across the community.

The Rockford Rotary Club is working with other groups to have Rockford become one of 100 cities across the world identified as a city of peace by the International Cities of Peace.

The Rotary will lead the application process.

Rotary members said the club will celebrate it's 100th anniversary in June 2016 and would like to "promote peace" through this effort.

Rockford Rotary has 160 members.
