The Grand Lake International Association is repsonsible for the sister city exchange between Mercer County high school students and high school students from Minamiawaji, Japan. This year, a total of 10 delegates from all over Mercer County will be making the trip to Japan for a 10 day host stay in Minamiawaji. Since all of the delegates are high school students, they are seeking ways to help offset their cost since the trip is close to $2700. With that said, the students have worked diligently collecting over 100 items for a quarter auction to be held on June 9, 2013 at 1:30pm at Briarwood Village's Gathering Place, 100 Don Desch Dr, Coldwater OH 45828. Doors will be open at 12:30pm, snacks will be available, as well as raffles and a 50/50. The cost is $3.00 per paddle. Bring plenty of quarters! Proceeds benefit the Japanese Sister City Delegates from Mercer County.
