  • Siskiyou Boulevard will be lined with Mexican and American flags Thursday and Friday, weather permitting.
    Courtesy of the Kiwanis Club, the flags are part of the 40th anniversary celebration of the sister city relationship between Ashland and Guanajuato, Mexico. At least 70 delegates from the central Mexico city are visiting Ashland this week.
    Kiwanis places American flags along the boulevard and at local businesses during 10 national holidays, but this is the first time Mexican flags will be displayed, flag co-chairman Russ Chadwick said.
    "It's just to celebrate them being here and to make them feel welcome," he said.
    The flags are part of the community-wide effort by Ashland and its service clubs to welcome the delegates and continue the people-to-people contact that has characterized the sister-city relationship since its inception in 1969.
