Karlyn Shorb, is an attorney and the Executive Director of Aurora Sister Cities International (ASCI).
The purpose of ASCI is to promote trade and business.
Aurora City Council has approved our proposed first new sister city with Adama, Ethiopia. We kick off this exciting new initiative in August when we welcome a delegation from Adama when we will host an official signing ceremony on stage during Global Fest on August 23.
Aurora has a large Ethiopian population ranking just behind Hispanics.
Karlyn reported on a trip she and a delegation took to Adama, Ethiopia. The delegation visited wind farms, hospitals, and agriculture related businesses.
As a gesture of friendship, Adama has deeded about an acre of land to Aurora in the hopes that Aurora will be able to develop it. They don't sell land in Ethiopia so it is on a very long term lease.
