2020 President's Message
2019 was a busy and exciting year for the Sister Cities Association of Corning, New York.
In January Marketing and Membership committee members updated our website and provided an easier method for membership renewals on line. We are now using WIX program for our 2020 Sister Cities Association Membership and renewals. I encourage everyone to renew at https://www.corningsistercities.org/shop and share with family and friends about the associations. It’s a great opportunity to learn about our friends in Lviv, Ukraine; Kakegawa, Japan; and San Valdarno, Italy. We are always looking for host families for students and adults who visit us for a week. It’s wonderful experience for students and adults to learn about another culture and share ours. There are many other ways to participate, volunteers are always welcomed.
Corning Sister Cities was invited to participate in the Corning EXPO in April. Working with the Corning Foundation we are able to participate in the Dollars for Doers program and the Matching Gift program if you work for Corning Inc. You can donate hours or a
gift to a specific organization (Corning Lviv, Kakegawa or San Giovani or just Sister Cities Association of Corning.)
Our Annual Corning Sister Cities Association Meeting will be held on March 29th at 2 PM in the First Congregational United Church of Christ, 171 Pulteney Street, Corning. Please join us for light refreshments and see and hear about our student’s and adult
travels and experiences for the year.
