- Culver City's Centennial Celebration visit
September 23 to October 02, 2016
On September 23 to October 02, five delegates from the Lethbridge Twinning Society were guests of Culver City Sister City Committee. We attended the Centennial Celebration of the City of Culver City.
It was an awesome visit and a great honour to participate in the festivities. Building upon our Sister City relations that began in 1989 was a privilege. Citizen diplomats do much in bringing our communities together in peace friendship and understanding. Since 1989 there have been several exchange visits between residents of Lethbridge and Culver City. Sports teams, school music groups, youth ambassadors and Municipal elected officials have participated in these exchange visits. Most prominent was our delegation visit to Culver City along with former Mayor Bob Tarleck when he was presented the Key to the City of Culver City!
See more about our 2016 visit at Culver City events page.
