City of Bowman Community Meeting

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. -George Bernard Shaw-

From civic organizations to government participation, the citizens of Elbert County are active, engaged and alive with projects and forward thinking.


Sister City Program Through Elberton, GA

“Citizens directly involved in international relations…”

The Elberton, Georgia/Mure, Japan Sister City Program began in 1982 when both towns’ City Councils agreed to establish the program. The Mayors of both towns officially signed the agreement to establish the program in 1983.

The Elberton Sister City Program is a nonprofit group of local citizens that works to create and strengthen relations between Elberton, Georgia and Mure-cho, Japan. The program is to enable citizens to become directly involved in international relations in a unique and meaningful way, bringing long-term benefits to both the community and its partner abroad. The Sister City relationship allows citizens to exchange ideas, gain an international prospective and increase understanding of global issues as well as development of economic growth to both parties. The Sister City relationship also builds the foundation for increased tourism, reliable business contacts, cross cultural awareness, and builds a personal bridge to world peace.

The Elberton program is guided by a committee of 30 members of local government, business, civic, and educational community. It’s funded by 25% from local government, 50% from the community through fundraising, and 25% from the participants in each annual exchange.
