Concord and Kitakami, Japan, have enjoyed sister city status for 40 years. Fifty representatives of Kitakami were hosted by the
Concord Ambassadors (www.ConcordAmbassadors.org) recently and marked this anniversary with a mix of sharing culture and tradition, speeches, dining, and sightseeing–including a tour of the Galindo Home and Gardens.
Concord Historical Society members Carol Longshore (president), Vivian Boyd (1st vice president), and Barbara Hayworth attended the dinner held at Centre Concord on Thursday, October 2, 2014. Each enjoyed meeting our visitors from Kitakami.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
