The Eugene-Kakegawa Sister City Committee (EKSCC) invites the community to an information session on Saturday, September 9 at 2 p.m. at the Hilyard Community Center to learn more about the committee and opportunities to be involved. 


This information session will include a brief history of the Eugene-Kakegawa Sister City program along with a panel of people who know Kakegawa, have hosted delegates from Kakegawa, have been delegates to Kakegawa or have helped table events that EKSCC has sponsored.

- Formalizing the Friends of EKSC membership
