Each year, Chandler-Tullamore Sister Cities participates in the Young Artists and Authors Showcase, encouraging youth from throughout the City of Chandler to express the mission of Sister Cities International through original photography. This program is a great opportunity to reach out into the community and engage local Teachers, and reach a student audience that may not already be included in sister city programming.
This year’s theme, “Peace through People,” will commemorate the 60th Anniversary of Sister Cities International by celebrating 60 years of global citizen action and impact while looking ahead toward a better future where the world’s citizens can come together and find common ground, prosperity, and peace.
"Desert Fare" is a collaborative international cookbook by the students at Seton Catholic Preparatory, Chandler and Sacred Heart School, Tullamore, Co. Offaly, Ireland.
Proceeds will help pay for travel expenses for Student Ambassadors traveling to Chandler's Sister City, Tullamore, Ireland.
Longtime Chandler Irish friend and corporate sponsor, Helen Asche, passed away on Monday, August 3, 2015. She was able to accompany Chandler-Tullamore Sister Cities representatives to Ireland just this past May.
Helen was a "Corporate Sponsor" of our Chandler-Tullamore Sister Cities, and was a valued member of our community - attending events and always complimentary of our efforts to continue our relationship with Tullamore, Ireland. We were so pleased she attended our joint committees meeting in Tullamore - and she was anxious to be on the Student Ambassador Program committee for the 2016 exchange. We certainly will miss her presence as we move forward with our new program for 2016 - she had so many ideas on activities for the students!
