SISTER CITIES ARTICLE IN OUR STATE
Check out this excellent article in Our State magazine about North Carolina’s Sister Cities organizations. It talks about the work our Osogbo committee has done in our Sister City in Nigeria. Want to get involved? Visit our Events & Committee Meetings page to learn more.
FRENCH CONVERSATION GROUP
Each Thursday from 12:30-1:30 p.m., Asheville Sister Cities hosts an informal French conversation group, Club Jeudi, at the office at 33 Page Ave. (across from The Grove Arcade). All levels are welcome to come and practice their spoken French. There are no rules or expectations except that everyone speaks only French – no matter how imperfectly – during the hour. Usually a native speaker or people who have lived in France are on hand to help out. Club Jeudi often reads excerpts from books out loud just to help warm up the lips and help the pronunciation. Doors open at 12:30. Feel free to bring your lunch. Please email Phyllis Cook for more information.
SAN CRISTÓBAL COMMITTEE MEETING & POTLUCK
The next meeting of the San Cristóbal committee will be Friday, April 17th at 6pm at the home of Gwen and Carroll Hughes. Please bring a potluck item and your favorite beverage. We’ll be discussing our Cinco de Mayo event (scheduled for el Ocho de Mayo — May 8), which we’ll need volunteers for, and a tentative delegation trip to San Cristóbal in August of this year. For directions, please RSVP to Greg Clemons. We hope to see you there!
DELEGATION TO VALLADOLID
The Valladolid Committee is planning a delegation to this beautiful Sister City from June 16-23. Email committee chair Karon Korp for more information.
