Sister Cities Visit Starts Saturday

A dozen high school students and four adults from Miyoshi City, Japan arrives in The Dalles Saturday as part of a longstanding sister cities relationship.  Delegates will stay with local host families, visit students at The Dalles High School, Wahtonka Community School and St. Mary’s Academy, and tour the region.  The sister city relationship between The Dalles and Miyoshi City began nearly 30 years ago through the efforts locally of Bob and Kris McFadden.   It is formalized through agreements between Miyoshi City and the City of The Dalles, which assigns a council member as liaison to the sister cities association.  In addition to the students, delegation members include Yu Sakamoto, representing Miyoshi City government; Motoyuki Matsunohana, Miyoshi City association president; Yaemi Kawahara, association secretary general; and Miho Takai, a former member of Japan’s parliament.
