Sister City Cultural Exchange 2019 Sponsorship & Welcome Party Registration
3/23/2019 - 3/27/2019 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM
Since 2010, Marion has been taking part in a Sister City program to provide global connections and exchanges between the international city of Kanie Town, Japan and the residents of Marion, IL. Regardless of the 6,000 mile distance, this relationship has grown stronger over the years. Each year, the communities schedule alternating visits to learn about business, education, and cultural differences.
The visiting delegations are made up of leaders and students from each community. The students stay with host families, enabling them to take in as much culture as possible.
This event would not possible without the support of local organizations. Join the Marion Chamber, the City of Marion, VisitSI, Senator Fowler, and Representative Severin in supporting this year's event. Location: Various locations around Marion
