The RJ Celebration Continues!

 
Sarasota City Commissioners pictured here listen to a presentation by Sarasota Sister Cities' representatives at May 15 hearing.
 
At the close of the late session, the City of Sarasota gave its final approval of the designation of "Sister City" to Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland.
 
In addition to Nelle Camardo, (RJ) City Director and Marianna Janz-Wecke, a contingent of other SCAS members attended to lend morale support.
 
Ms. Camardo is currently traveling in Switzerland to celebrate and share this milestone with her Swiss counterparts.  Congratulations to all on a job well done!

Sister Cities Invities You to Attend Reception and Lecture


 


This project is the culmination of a cultural exchange that began in 2005 when Don and his wife Nina Weber Worth met the lead architect for the Shanghai World’s Fair who was in charge of preserving historic Art Deco buildings in Shanghai. This fortuitous convergence occurred as part of a delegation visit to Shanghai organized by President and Vice President Duane Finger and Jill Dye of the Sarasota Chapter of the US-China People’s Friendship Association (USCPFA) and hosted by the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (counterpart to Sister Cities International).
 
An additional achievement of this historic 2005 delegation was our first official meeting with the Xiamen (Fujian Province) government, pursuant to negotiating a sister city relationship, arranged with the assistance of Dr. Carolyn Bloomer, Chair of Sarasota Sister Cities China Study Committee. Sarasota’s Chinese Sister City relationship with the Siming District of Xiamen Municipality, which became official in 2007, is now celebrating its 10th anniversary year.
