Sister City Program to Hold Third Annual Public Meeting

The Bath-Tsugaru Sister City Japanese Exchange Program will be holding its annual public meeting on Wednesday, November 17th, at 6 pm at the Winter Street Center at 880 Washington Street in Bath.
The agenda will include program updates, Japanese food and music, and annual elections.  All are welcome.
Over the past year the program has continued to grow.  The largest travel group to date visited Tsugaru area in the summer, followed by a visit to Bath by Tsugaru students and chaperones.  The program now has its first hired coordinator, and the board of this nonprofit group recently started to submit  grant applications for new projects.
The relationship between the two cities originated with the wreck of the Bath-built ship, the Cheseborough, in 1889 on the shore of Shariki, Japan.  A valiant rescue attempt and years of commemorating the event lead to the visit 100 years later by a group from Shariki, who proposed the sister city relationship.  S
