Our family has hosted the Welcome Reception for the
Sister City Delegation from Hokuto City, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan
for several years. The delegation visits Berea, Richmond and Madison County, KY
in May for a week.
In turn the Madison County delegation visits Japan in October.
The Sister City relationship has been happening for over 25 years.
Yes, that's Derby Pie for dessert.
There were 40 guests for the event, including 15 delegates from Japan.

The week is full of fun activities as we all become better acquainted!
