Sister Cities Yorktown kicks off the new year in fine fashion with two important events:

* Don’t miss the upcoming annual meeting, Sunday, Jan. 13, 2 p.m., Yorktown Library on U.S. 17 (8500 Geo. Wash. Mem. Hwy.) Yorktown. Our special guest is Nicolas Valcour, Consul Honoraire de France en Virginie Honorary (Consul of France in Virginia). Our student exchange travelers will report on their visit to Port-Vendres. Catch up on news, enjoy the traditional Galette des Rois,  and renew your membership.

* Winter Wine Dinner, Thursday, 7 p.m., Jan. 24, Le Yaca, Williamsburg. Clement Brown once again will provide wine (and entertainment!). Chef Daniel Abid will provide
several entrée choices including fire-roasted lamb. We expect the cost to remain $70 per person for members and $75 for non-members, including tax and gratuity. This is a hugely popular event. Payments and reservations must made in advance.
