Edmonds sister city group gets grant

EDMONDS — The Hazel Miller Foundation awarded the Edmonds Sister City Commission a $7,500 grant to partially fund some of the cultural and community events of the 25th anniversary celebration of the sister city relationship with Hekinan, Japan.

This financial award will help the Edmonds community host the Japanese delegation during their stay from Oct. 29 through Nov. 4.

The Edmonds Sister City Commission anticipates that nearly 40 people of Hekinan will travel with their delegation this autumn. The delegation is expected to view traditional Japanese performances at the Edmonds Center for the Arts and take in a photo exhibition of award-winning Hekinan photographer Kiyotaka Sugiura.

They are also expected to attend a Halloween party.

In April, Mayor Dave Earling led a delegation of Edmonds citizens to Hekinan in celebration of the two cities’ quarter century anniversary of their sister city relationship.
