Spring Membership Drive &  Sister Cities Mont

Dear Friends of Corvallis Sister Cities Association (CSCA):
        In this Spring edition, we would like to announce our Spring Membership Drive and some upcoming activities planned for May as Sister Cities Month. 

Membership Drive:

        We would like to invite you to renew your CSCA membership or to become a new member.  You may notice that this membership request is a little different than those sent in the past.  You will now receive one annual membership request from CSCA. Your membership supports our sister cities programs in Uzhhhorod, Ukraine and Gondar, Ethiopia.  Members have an opportunity to get involved with a wide range of activities to support CSCA’s sister city programs in Uzhhorod and Gondar.  There are no paid employees in the organization. We are all volunteers working to encourage friendships, exchanges, and build relationships with the citizens of Gondar and Uzhhorod.  Your tax-deductible donation makes a difference!
         To become a member, or to renew an existing membership, please click on the following:  CSCA’s membership. We also invite you to review our new membership brochure
         Please accept our apologies if you have already received a membership solicitation in the mail.  We offer our thanks if you have already submitted your membership payment.

Sister Cities Month Activities:
        Every year, CSCA celebrates Sister Cities Month in May.  Planned activities for the month are listed and described in the right column. We hope to see you at a number of these events.

With best regards,
Corvallis Sister Cities Association
Recruiting for Gondar Council Vacancies
