Sister Cities Partnership Hosts Higashiomi Delegation

With a 13-hour time difference, over 6,000 miles and more than 22 hours of travel time between us, one might say Higashiomi, Japan is more than a “hop, skip and jump” away!

Join us for a welcoming community reception at the Huron Gallery, Peter White Library on Aug. 29 between 6 and 8 p.m. Our seven delegates represent the many facets of Higashiomi. Your presence will help convey the warm and inviting community we have in Marquette. Following a short program, enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres by Copper Crust Co. The Marquette Area Sister Cities Partnership Committee is proud to host the events for the Sister City delegation. The Japanese delegation is being led by Hitoki Taguchi.

Additionally, the community is invited and encouraged to welcome our guests when they arrive at Sawyer International Airport, August 26 at 8:20 p.m. Both events are free to the public.

For more information about the Japanese delegation, contact Paulette Lindberg at 869-4141 or via email at paulettelindberg@gmail.com. The Arts and Culture Center is temporarily located in the main level of the Peter White Library at 217 N. Front St. We can be reached at 228-0472, or via email at artsculture@marquettemi.gov.
