Boulder-Kisumu Sister City Tile Dedication


Boulder’s newest Sister City, Kisumu, Kenya will be honored with a dedication of its Sister City Tile at Sister City Plaza (on the East Side of the Boulder Municipal Building) on August 5th, 2010 at 5:30 in the evening.

The Tile dedication will be followed by a Fund Raising Event and Celebration at the St. Julian Hotel in Boulder (900 Walnut Street).

The Fund Raising Event will include live music and a silent auction.  The proceeds from this event will go toward a water and sanitation project at the Oasis of Hope School in Kisumu, Kenya.  Oasis of Hope is a school for orphans that is in dire need of assistance. The school is dependent on the contributions and support of the Kisumu community and volunteers. The 230 children that attend the school at no cost will benefit from the building of toilet facilities, water tower and hand washing stations.

This event not only is a chance for the citizens of Boulder to assist with our Sister City of Kisumu, Kenya, but it is an invitation to the community to experience the magic of Kisumu and support this unique program. The event is open to the general public and will begin with an unveiling of the Boulder Kisumu City Tile in Sister City Plaza directly in front of the municipal building, as well as live music and art auction at the St. Julian.

The Oasis of Hope project is a collaboration between the Boulder Kisumu Sister City Committee, Boulder Rotary Club, Kisumu Winam Rotary Club and Denver Mile High Rotary Club.

For information about the event, please email admin at boulderkisumu dot org or phone at (720) 363-7269.  If you would like to RSVP, it would be greatly appreciated, please do so at:
