Two student exchanges and one adult exchange made for a busy 2017 for Sister Cities Yorktown. Now we’re gearing up for an exciting 2018, and we want all members to be a part of that.

We’ll start the year with our annual meeting on Sunday, Feb. 18, 4 p.m. at the Riverwalk Restaurant. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear reports and see photos from our citizen and student ambassadors!

Everyone’s favorite French Market returns on Saturday, April 21. Then our second, highly anticipated, Soirée en Blanc in late summer. (Date to be decided.) Lastly, the Yorktown Wine Festival on Oct. 6 gives our organization a great opportunity to raise funds for future programs.

All these events require the assistance of people like you! If you would like to become involved in any of these events, please let us know. We need general helpers, coordinators, decorators, etc. Reply to this post or email

Some work, some play makes for an invigorated organization!
