Diplomacy GNV style

Listen. If you haven’t been to City Hall recently you really ought to drop by. Out on the front lawn is a very impressive display of collages celebrating Gainesville’s extensive family of sister cities.

Who knew that Gainesville had 9 sister cities? And all over the globe. This thanks to Steve Kalishman, for years the one-man motivating force behind Gainesville’s Sister City program.

And thanks to the visual arts students at Oak Hall who put this presentation together.

GNV is in Haiti.

And, playing no favorites, in both Israel and Palestine.

And Lebanon.

Iraq.

Jordan.

Nicaragua.

Poland.

Heck, gators have even reached out to the Russian bear. Imagine that.

Listen, when the people lead anything can happen. Well done GNV.
