PROGRAM EXPLORES SISTER CITY RELATIONSHIP

MARQUETTE – Northern Center for Lifelong Learning will offer a free public program that will explore the Sister City program between Marquette and Yokaichi, Japan. In May, a delegation of Yokaichi residents will visit Marquette to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the relationship.

The program will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 18, at the Peter White Public Library. Presenters are Paulette Lindberg, chair of Sister City planning since 1981, and Julie Higbie, a member of the Sister Cities advisory board and a 2003 delegate to Yokaichi. Both will share their experiences of friendship and cultural exchanges.
