Snoqualmie’s growing sister cities program needs your help

Snoqualmie is a sister city of Gangjin, Korea, and has just become a friendship city of Chaclacayo, Peru. As the Snoqualmie Sister Cities Association grows, more volunteers are needed to help manage the program. Several students from Gangjin and Chaclacayo will be staying in Snoqualmie, January 4 through 27, to attend Mount Si High School. Volunteers are needed to coordinate host families, organize field trips, set up language classes, provide transportation and, in general, make things happen. Any level of commitment is welcome.
