Thursday, July 9, 2009

Sister Cities programs in America were founded with the goal of achieving international understanding and peace through citizen diplomacy.

The city of Gifu, Japan has been a valued Sister City of Cincinnati, Ohio since May 11, 1988. Cincinnati and Gifu have a rich history of cooperation, exchange, respect and friendship.

We hereby jointly commemorate those who fell in the bombing of Gifu City on July 9, 1945 by reaffirming our
commitment to world peace. We recognize that peace is a difficult process, but the first step is to work together and build strong relationships.

We ring the World Peace Bell as a sign of hope in the future and as a sign of our support of the efforts of all
those working towards world peace.

Gifu Sister City Committee, the City of Cincinnati and the City of Gifu welcome everyone in Greater Cincinnati and surrounding areas to share your support by attending the Ringing of the World Peace Bell.

When: Thursday, July 9, 4:00 PM
Where: World Peace Bell
