Within the spirit of the Sister Cities Association of Sarasota’s recent friendship initiative with the Swiss City of Rapperswil-Jona, 4 members of the Swiss Volleyball Team were welcomed on June 9th, 2016 to Siesta Key.  

The mission of Sister Cities Association of Sarasota, Inc. (SCAS) is to foster international relationships between Sarasota and cities that have similar interests by creating exchanges in areas of culture, education, tourism, business and government. 

Rapperswil-Jona, in Switzerland is a town of roses located on the upper end of Lake Zurich, and combines sights, cultural life, hiking and sports possibilities with a Mediterranean holiday atmosphere. Welcome to the Riviera located on the upper end of Lake Zurich.

The team members are staying with Swiss American Club of Sarasota families, and the Sister Cities Association of Sarasota, Acting City Director Nelly Camardo is ensuring a busy schedule for the visitors in spite of the rain out of the scheduled beach volley ball matches on Siesta Key.
This is the initial exchange under the friendship program and we look forward to many more in the future, in sports, culture, and education between the Swiss City of Rapperswil-Jona and Sarasota.
