Sister Cities


Sister Cities Committee 
In 1991, Columbia Heights received agreement from Lomianki, Poland (next to Warsaw) that they would be proud to be in a partnership with our City and we formalized this  “Sister Cities, International” friendship.  Our members are dedicated to this international friendship by promoting humanitarian, educational, cultural, civic and social events.

We only have ten monthly meetings (usually the second Tuesday of the month) and do not meet during July and December.  Currently we meet in Columbia Heights City Hall;  second floor council chambers at 1:00 pm.

We raise our own funds.  The City of Columbia Heights pays our annual dues to S.C.I. Headquarters, Washington, DC.  We occasionally have evening meetings and events.   Meetings are open to the public.

Membership in this premier organization is available to ALL do not have to be Polish.  Residency in Columbia Heights is not required.  Our members come from throughout the Twin Cities, Minnesota,  and other US states.  Membership information is listed in the attached brochure. JOIN this active and effective organization!
