This year, 2014, the San Jose Dublin Sister City Program, Inc. has a very exciting calendar of activities to support our mission.

You, our public, were cordially invited to participate in our public activities, which we will continue to present in NEW ways in order to achieve our three goals:

1) Continue our ongoing quarterly series of cultural and social activities;

2) Continue our year round fundraising campaign to exclusively support and grow the “first of its kind” Pat McMahon Masters Level Exchange Scholarship Series, and;

3) Showcase the Spirit of Ireland Award Program distinct from Irish Week.
