The Sister Cities Association of Springfield, IL, Inc. (SCAS) invites you to participate in an observance of the second anniversary of the Great Tohoko Earthquake and Tsunami on Monday, March 11, 2013 at 5:00 PM in the City Council Chambers of the Municipal Building.

Springfield Mayor J. Michael Houston, the Honorary Chairperson of the Sister Cities Association of Springfield, IL, Inc. will lead the ceremony, honoring the memory of those lost in the disaster and the events that followed. He will remember the role citizens of Springfield had in the recovery of the area, from donations to the SCAS Ashikaga Relief Fund, to the Red Cross and Mission Outreach.

Participants will place a single memorial flower stem (we will provide) on a table while Amazing Grace is sung. All present will then observe a moment of silence.

Please join us for this brief ceremony.
