"The September Concert" to Remember 9/11 victims and to Celebrate the "Sister Cities International" program
On Thursday, Sept 11th, the City of Clearwater joined communities around the world from Beijing, China to New York City as they filled the skies with the universal language of music in The September Concert.
The September Concert is a series of free musical performances held in cities around the world on Sept 11th every year in remembrance of the 9/11 tragedy. The concerts offer a way for communities to commemorate this historic date and focus on bringing all people together, reaffirming our hope for world peace and celebrating life and universal humanity.
Sister Cities International is a movement founded in 1956 after U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower convened a White House Summit on Citizen Diplomacy. In a speech delivered on September 11, 1956, President Eisenhower called on Americans to forge people-to-people ties with communities abroad and to build a lasting peace based understanding and respect.
CLEARWATER - The Community Learning Center (CLC), which has been offering tutoring and study skills to individuals and families throughout Tampa Bay for over 10 years is launching an exciting new program - the Community Cookbook.
The Community Cookbook is a special project to get community members to submit their very best recipes to be included in the book. The cookbook is scheduled to be released in time for Mother's Day. In addition to the recipes local businesses are being encouraged to place very reasonably priced ads in the publication.
"This will be a fun and simple way to generate a tremendous amount of community participation as well as financial resources for local non-profits and schools to continue to deliver quality programming for young people"
