Concert benefits Issaquah’s sister city ties
June 5, 2012
Join the municipal Sister Cities Commission and the nonprofit American Moroccan International Exchange to celebrate strong international ties among Issaquah and sister cities in Morocco and Norway.
Issaquah and Sunndal, Norway, established a sister-city pact in 1991. Chefchaouen, Morocco, and Issaquah formalized a similar relationship in 2007.
The organizations plan a June 9 concert to benefit the commission’s international partnerships. The event is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the Issaquah Community Center, 301 Rainier Blvd. S. The lineup includes the bands Astro Cats, O’Dark:30 and Kalimba. The event is open to guests of all ages.
Tickets cost $10. Purchase tickets in advance at online at www.amieonline.org/concert2012; at Issaquah City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way; or by calling 837-3000.
The fundraiser supports cultural exchange programs. Past Sister Cities Commissions efforts included student and artist exchanges.
