Sister Cities Association of Sarasota

Citizen Diplomats—Carving a Path toward Peace since 1963

SCAS News and Notes

Premier “Discover Sarasota Sister Cities” Educates Locals Seeking Global Impact.

cb.jpg Carolyn Bloomer, Ph.D Speaks to audience at Nov 13 meeting at Selby Library, about the rewards of being a Citizen Diplomat associated with Sister Cities Association of Sarasota. Dr. Bloomer, SCAS VP, Sister Cities and Professor Emeritus, Ringling College of Art and Design is retiring from SCAS in December.

In addition to Bloomer, Marianna Janz-Weck, President, Raymond Young, Ph.D, VP-Education, Isabelle Eidet, VP-Membership, and Toni Duval, VP-Communication provided the overview of the organization’s History, Sister City exchanges, membership benefits, and communication efforts.  As a result, we gained four new members and volunteers for SCAS teams.

Early feedback about the event was positive and all agreed that increasing awareness about SCAS is needed in order for the organization to continue its good work.  Feel free to contact Toni Duval If you know of any organization that could benefit from learning more about Sarasota Sister Cities.
