A lot of new things have been recently planted in Memory Walk Park, including a peace pole. The peace pole, donated by Edna and the late Ellis Gerber, is one of the many improvements that the park has seen in the last five years. Inscribed on the pole are the words, “May Peace Prevail on Earth” written in German, Lao, Spanish and English. When it sat on the Gerber’s property, members of First Mennonite Church would gather on Sunday afternoon to pray, sing and do readings all for the cause of world peace. Memory Walk Park and other beautification projects got an added boost when the city of Mt. Lake was awarded a $10,000 grant from the Toro Company in 2014.
