Ashcroft plans for Bifuka delegation

Ashcroft makes plans to honour a delegation from its Sister City in Japan, Bifuka.

Are you interested in learning more about our sister city, Bifuka, Japan? Are you interested in being involved with a Bifuka delegation when they come for a visit in August 2013? Are you interested in travelling to Bifuka in 2014 to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of our Sister City Relationship?

If you answered “Yes” to any of the above, you are invited to attend a meeting on Sunday, March 23 at 10 am in the Ashcroft Village Office. We are expecting a delegation of eight people from Bifuka for a three or four day visit and are looking to organize a fun-filled and informative itinerary for them.

There will be an Ashcroft delegation travelling to Bifuka in July 2014, and while each participant is responsible for their own travel costs, expenses are kept reasonable and the hospitality extended by Bifuka is outstanding.

If you are interested in attending or would like more information please contact Councillor Helen Kormendy at hkormend@telus.net or at 250-453-2309.
