Maroochy celebrates Sister Cities Day
Maroochy Shire's Sister City links with Japan, China and the United Kingdom will be celebrated on Sister Cities Day on 5 July 2005.
The community members that make up the Maroochy Shire Sister City Community Association are enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge and understanding of the Shire's Sister City relations, and look forward to celebrating on Sister Cities Day.
The Association will host an information and promotional event at the Arigatou Sushi and Teppanyaki restaurant at the Sunshine Plaza next Tuesday evening, and invite interested community members to come along and learn more about our Sister Cities.
Association Chair, Trevor Thompson, said over the years Maroochy Shire has developed strong links with our Sister Cities that have resulted in significant educational, cultural and economic relations.
"Sister Cities Day is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate these links between Maroochy and the communities of other countries," Mr Thompson said.
"We hope to meet with interested community members to talk about the activities of the Association and to encourage further involvement from the local community.
The Maroochy Shire Sister City Community Association's aim is to promote community participation in developing greater understanding, friendship and economic benefit to Maroochy Shire by fostering our Sister City relationships.
Maroochy residents interested in attending the information event are asked to RSVP by 12.00pm Monday 4 July by telephone on 5441 8257 to assist with catering.
