Scottsdale-Kingston Celebrate 30 Years of Sisterhood!

Scottsdale Sister Cities is happy to celebrate 30 years of friendship with our Sister City in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. It was an exciting year for this relationship with:

  • First Student Exchange - October 2023 to Kingston, March 2024 Kingston students here

  • Formal Delegation Trip here in February 2024 including Mayor Bryan Paterson

  • Second visit from Mayor Bryan Paterson, his wife Shyla and their family in May

Watch this video made by the Kingston partners to celebrate our anniversary. You will see former Mayor Helen Cooper talk about the original forming of our partnership when Scottsdale's Mayor Herb Drinkwater would travel by boat from his home in the Thousand Islands to visit Kingston. Though geographically different, we have much in common with Kingston.

Special thanks to Suzie Austin, Kingston Committee Chair, and the Kingston Committee for all of the hard work they put in for these 30th anniversary events. And thanks to our partners in Kingston, Sandy Berg, Wendy Bellamy, Allison Philpot and Stacey Wolfram for this wonderful video.
