Boulder County residents are invited to join the Boulder Rotary Club Wednesday afternoon to celebrate International Peace Day.

The rotary club will hold a presentation and ceremony at noon at the Boulder International Peace Garden located at 1001 Arapahoe Ave. During the event, Boulder Mayor Aaron Brockett and Boulder Rotary Club President Cassidy Murphy will speak, and the Boulder Rotary’s Jim Swaeby Peace Award will be presented to a recipient who has shown outstanding achievement in advancing international understanding, goodwill and peace, according to the rotary club’s website.

Following the short presentation and ceremony, the residents can join in on a guided walk, according to a news release.

For residents who cannot make it to Boulder, a walk in honor of International Peace Day will also be held at noon on Wednesday in Longmont. The walk will begin at the St. Vrain Greenway, the new release said.
