Lismores sister is here

Father Paul Glynn, a Marist priest who now lives in Sydney but was raised in Lismore, was the man who instigated the sister city relationship between Lismore and Yamato-Takada in Japan 43 years ago.

Cultural events (like tree plantings, Japanese music) will be held in Lismore from September 21-24 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Basic Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation between Australia and Japan.

Lismores sister city link with Yamato-Takada was the first such relationship between any Oz city and a Japanese one.

For more info about the events phone Tazuko McLaren on 0419 201 129.
