Come Join Bellingham Sister Cities And Help Build World Peace

7CountriesCitiesCultures-editedIt is almost time for world peace!

November 7th will be a great evening for you to be part of building  world peace in the vision of President Eisenhower who saw Sister Cities as a way to lesson the chance of future conflicts.  Join the Bellingham Sister Cities Association Board and fellow community members for our Gala and Fundraiser at Bellingham Technical College from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM.  It is going to be a great and unique evening!  BSCA receives no money from any source other than its members and friends, so now is the time to get registered for this event. Our fundraiser includes hearty appetizers from each of our seven sister cities, prepared by the chefs of Bellingham Technical College, as well as video greetings from each of our sister cities.

For those of you who will not be able to attend, please consider donating by clicking on the registration link RSVP and Register Here and make a donation.  Funds from this event will be used to help with the International BSCA Ski-to-Sea scholarships, the annual Peace Grant, PacRim 2016, Japanese New Year, Mongolian New Year, only a few of the regular events we put on.
