The Culver City Sister City Committee will be celebrating its 55th anniversary of twinning with Uruapan, Michoacán, Mexico, a relationship that was established on February 24, 1964. Our bond of friendship with the people of Uruapan, has been going strong for 55 years.
To show the value of the friendship has with Culver City and to cement its ties to our city, Uruapan has named a street in its city after “Culver City.”
One fire truck and two ambulances, donated by the Culver City Fire Department, have helped save lives for many years, something for which the people of Uruapan are very grateful.
Uruapan is a semitropical plain surrounded by pines. Its name, loosely translated, means “Where the Flowers Grow.” Uruapan is the cultural and spiritual center of the Tarascan Indians and is known for its active volcano, avocados, lacquer-work, pottery, woodwork, embroidery and waterfall-filled national park.
A delegation from CCSCC is planning a visit to Uruapan in April 2019.
