Members of the Steering Committee (past and present) plus many people who have participated in partnership activities over the years were invited.
During the evening we presented pictures of Ira and shared our experiences with him.
Officials and friends also spoke in his honor and the mayors of the Kiryat Malachi and Hof Ashkelon regions presented him each with an individual honorary award. Even though Ira will be leaving his position as a representative of Tucson, Seattle and Phoenix in the partnership, he will continue to be involved in the partnership activities.
We would like to thank all who contributed in making this evening a special event not only for Ira, but also for those who attended.
