Sister City Connections
- The Sister Cities International program mission is to create
citizen-to-citizen networks that transcend national boundaries and
promote international friendships.
Programs start with city-official to city-official contacts, then
city-guided but citizen-run, finally blossoming into
citizen-to-citizen contacts with little further official boosting.
We are now beginning this second phase with the Friends of Lawrence organization in Hiratsuka
gearing up for an October 16-20th 1996 trip to Lawrence.
- Information on how the program got started between Lawrence and
Hiratsuka, and a short summary of
events so far (last updated 7/96) between the cities.
- Hiratsuka Basic Information
- Hiratsuka Calendar
- Information about the Hiratsuka International Exchange
Association (HIEA) and current HIEA
