Tacoma to visit George in celebration of 23 years of Sister City Agreement

Tacoma to visit George in celebration of 23 years of Sister City Agreement

George Municipality looks forward to once again hosting a delegation from our sister city, Tacoma in the USA. A delegation led by the Mayor of Tacoma, Victoria Woodards arrive at George Airport on Saturday 22 February and will be met by a councillor, the George Sister Committee and the South Cape Children’s choir.

The official welcoming Gala Dinner takes place on Saturday evening and the delegates will participate in a packed itinerary of visits prior to departing.

This sister city agreement is now 23 years old and has over the years initiated a number of projects that are vital and remain ongoing such as the Phambili Battered Women’s Refuge. The sister city agreement was entered into due to the similarities between George and Tacoma – both are considered areas of great scenic beauty along a coastline as well as population numbers, business activities, infrastructures and organisations  being of a similar nature. 

The sister city agreement allows for a legal or social agreement to promote cultural and commercial ties. The last visit to George took place in August 2017 during Women’s Month arranged to emphasise the empowerment of women.
