9/24 – Pinwheels for Peace — the 11th annual Corvallis (Oregon) community celebration of the International Day of Peace — surrounded the Benton County Courthouse on Saturday morning.  Children and adults decorated pinwheels with symbols of peace while listening to the music of Ancient Ways – Nhimbe Marimba band.  Hundreds of pinwheels were placed along all the sidewalks around the courthouse.  The pinwheels will be on display through Monday, September 26th.  Earlier in the week, the Corvallis Mayor and City Council and the Benton County Commissioners proclaimed International Days of Peace for Corvallis and Benton County and encouraged the people of Corvallis and Benton County to engage in activities that promote peace and international understanding within and among nations.

See photos and a brief video below of the Ancient Ways music being played in front of the courthouse!
