Bath-Tsugaru Student Exchange Program Fundraiser
3/16/2020 UPDATE: Due to Coronavirus we have chosen to postpone this event, date TBD. Thank you for your interest! Please check back with us later.
What: Dinner, door prizes, and a chance to support Bath's unique Japanese exchange program. Your ticket includes appetizers and a three-course meal (soup/salad, entree, and dessert) at the famed Henry and Marty restaurant in Brunswick. Cash bar available.
Why: The City of Bath's relationship with the City of Tsugaru, Japan stems from the 1889 shipwreck of the Bath-built Cheseborough off the coast of Northern Japan. Friendship blossomed between the villagers who were able to rescue some of her crew, and Bath and Tsugaru later became sister cities.
For the past thirty-one years, our organization has been fostering this relationship by through an annual student exchange with Tsugaru. As a nonprofit 501c(3) organization, we rely on the generous support of the community to fund this important program which has served to broaden the perspectives of our young people and introduce them to a culture that is very different from our own.
The profits from this fundraiser will go toward student scholarships and program activities for students!
