@ Cookie Monster...It is an Awareness Campaign.
Mayor Mark P Hawke said the city cannot provide money for the effort. But what it can do, he said, is raise awareness of the effort by joining Sister Cities International and creating a sister city relationship with Fonde Fred.
The benefit to Gardner is that it would be able to play a key role in development of a worthy project in a Third World country, he said.
