It is heartbreaking to see the devastation happening to our friends in Japan. Our Sister City Fujiyoshida, while not impacted in the same way as Northern Japan, is also experiencing hardship.
Please keep the people of Japan in your thoughts. For those of us who would like to help financially the Japan America Society of Southern Colorado has set up a safe site for contributions at www.japanamerica.org.
Colorado Springs will continue to plan for our 50th Anniversary Celebration with Fujiyoshida. The awareness we can create through this process can only help our Sister City. If you would like to volunteer for the celebration in 2012 contact Sue Stohlman at the Diversity Forum.
