The Sister City Support Organization, in cooperation with the City of Oak Ridge and Oak Ridge Schools, has sponsored the visit of middle school students to our sister city of Naka-shi, Japan, for 22 years.
In support of the 2014 Middle School exchange, the Sister City Support Organization is hosting a spaghetti supper on Friday, April 25. The supper will be held at the First United Methodist Church from 5:30-8 p.m. Student exchange participants and SCSO board members will don Japanese “happy coats” and kimonos to serve the main course and an array of delicious homemade desserts.
Tickets are $6 each in advance or $20 for a family of four. Proceeds will benefit the SCSO middle school exchange with Naka-shi for 2014. Eight Oak Ridge middle school students and two teacher-chaperones will travel to Japan in July, and their Japanese counterparts will visit Oak Ridge in August.
Oak Ridge has two middle schools: Jefferson and Robertsville.
To purchase tickets, call Jerry Luckmann at (865) 483-3958. Admission at the door is $7.
