Town of Truckee announces opportunity to join Sister City Committee

Submitted to The Sun

On May 8, the Town Council directed staff to pursue the first steps of becoming a sister city, according to a release.

The town is inviting interested Truckee residents to join Truckee's Sister City Committee.

A sister city relationship is a long-term partnership established between two communities, usually in different countries. Themes of a sister city partnership could include educational, art or cultural exchanges, government, business, trade, or philanthropy.

The town will be working with interested community members to develop a sister city program and seek out a sister city. The committee's initial role will be to establish sister city selection criteria, research and reach out to potential sister cities, and recommend a first sister city to the town council. The town council will be responsible for approving the partnership.

Are you interested in learning about other cultures? Have a great idea for who our Sister City should be? Love sharing your Truckee pride with others?

If so, organizers encourage you to get involved.
