Hekinan delegation to visit Edmonds

May 24, 2013

An adult delegation of citizens and officials from Edmonds Sister City, Hekinan, Japan, will be in Edmonds from Oct. 29 to Nov. 4.

Mayor Earling, Edmonds Sister City Commissioners, Chamber of Commerce President Ron Clyborne, Edmonds Community College President Dr. Jean Hernandez, and Swedish/Edmonds Chief Executive David Jaffe will lead the welcome for the many events planned for the delegation.

On Oct. 30 a celebration of the Sister City 25th Anniversary at Edmonds Center for the Arts will feature traditional Japanese performances and a Photo Exhibition by award-winning Hekinan photographer Kiyotaka Sugiura, among other cultural presentations. Our Japanese friends greatly enjoy the Halloween festivities, so look for them in their unique costumes on October 31!

Join us in welcoming our Sister City delegates to Edmonds. Details of events and how Edmonds citizens can participate will follow as we move closer to the visit.
