Celebrating 50 Years of Sister City Friendships


Sunday June 14, 2015: 12:00pm to 9:00pm


Downtown Library: Lower Level Display Cases


This display of photographs, memorabilia and artifacts illustrates Ann Arbor’s fifty years of sister city relationships with seven countries.

Items include:
• a dress from Senegal,
• the trophy from the Arborough games,
• miniature items used as teaching aids for Japanese trips,
• a wooden model of a Tubingen punter boat,
• many books, pictures, and posters.

This exhibit is held in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the Ann Arbor/Tubingen sister city partnership. On December 9, 1965 the official charter of the Tubingen and Ann Arbor partnership was presented to City Council, followed by a concert of Christmas carols sung in German by Ann Arbor High School students. Visits between the two areas started as soon as the decision was made.
