As one of the concluding events of the 25th anniversary of Sister Cities Yorktown, 12 students and two teachers from Port-Vendres and Ceret, France, will visit Yorktown, Oct. 14-22 in conjunction with Yorktown Day, Oct. 19.
Students from York, Tabb and Grafton High Schools, who visited France in March this year, will host French students in their homes. Many wonderful friendships were made during that exchange, and this is a chance to return that hospitality. Visiting and host students will have an ambitious schedule. Sister City Yorktown members are welcome to meet the students at select events at their own expense.
