OUR MISSION Read the Oakwood & Outremont 40th Anniversary Speech here.
Oakwood Sister City Association works to actively fulfill the stated mission of Sister Cities International, honoring President Eisenhower’s 1956 mandate for citizen diplomacy, to “promote peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation – one individual, one community at a time.” We are volunteer citizens of Oakwood, Montgomery County, Ohio, USA, who host adult delegations and exchange students visiting Oakwood from our sister cities. We sponsor students and others from the Oakwood area visiting our sister cities and we put on community events in Oakwood to raise awareness in the community.
Oakwood currently has two very beautiful and dynamic French speaking sister cities: Le Vésinet, France, a suburb of Paris and Outremont, Canada, a suburb of Montreal. We also have a friendship pact with Unterhaching, Germany, a suburb of Munich.
