Day of Remembrance
A year after September 11, 2001, Temecula’s sister city of Leidschendam-Voorburg gave our city an amazing work of art, the “Singing in the Rain” statue, as a symbol of peace and unity between the people of our communities as well as our nations. Since 2002, the city has hosted a “Day of Remembrance” to commemorate those who were lost on that fateful day, but not forgotten. In partnership with Sister City International, the organization September Concert encourages local communities to ring in music across the nation on September 11th to bring them together, reaffirm our hope for peace and celebrate life and our universal humanity. The public is welcome to attend this event at the Duck Pond where the statue stands boldly through rain and sunshine.
Dutch American Heritage Day
We are looking for volunteers with the planning, preparation and management of our Dutch festival to Temecula. If you're interested in helping, please feel free to contact us at DAHD@TemeculaSisterCityAssociation.org.
