Scottsdale Sister Cities Association present at public library Nov. 12

Scottsdale’s eight sister cities will be showcased during a multimedia presentation at the Scottsdale Public Library–Civic Center branch on Saturday, Nov. 12.

Entitled “Around the World in 80 Minutes,” attendees will armchair travel to Kingston, Canada, Killarney, Ireland, Interlaken, Switzerland, Marrakech, Morocco, Uasin Gishu, Kenya, Cairns, Australia, Haikou, China and Alamos, Mexico, a press release stated.

Scottsdale Sister Cities Association will spotlight culture and tourism as well as make announcements about upcoming member trips, student exchanges, holiday member receptions and cultural activities.

The event starts at 2 p.m. in the library’s lower level auditorium.

“COVID-19 required us to pause many of our in-person activities, but we are now ramping up to rekindle the strong relationships we enjoy with our international friends,” Sandra Zally, president of Scottsdale Sister Cities Association, said in the release. “We have many opportunities for the citizens of Scottsdale and Paradise Valley to build international bridges.”

“We promise no airline hassles when you armchair travel with us,” said Kathy George, membership chairman. “After our program, consider heading over to the Waterfront for one of the last chances to experience this year’s Canal Convergence Light + Art extravaganza.”

Currently, SSCA has two art exchange exhibits on display locally and in Cairns, Australia.

The Art of Kenya at the Appaloosa branch of the library at 7377 E. Silverstone Drive through Nov. 5.

Art created by teens from Kingston, Canada can be seen at the library’s Mustang branch at 10101 N. 90th St.

SSCA also partnered with the Scottsdale Artist School to arrange for works by local Urban Sketchers to be exhibited at the Tanks Art Center in Cairns, Australia.

“The art exhibit is just one piece of our activities to celebrate 35 years of sisterhood with Cairns,” said George Hartz, SSCA chairman of the Cairns City Committee.
