We are celebrating 60 years of friendship with Tateyama this year. To mark this occasion we were invited to visit our friends in Tateyama this August 6th to 11th. We will be there for the big summer fireworks display. Tateyama Mayor, Kenichi Kanamaru, wanted to recognize our youth, so we obliged and will travel with 14 local high school Japanese language students and their Bellingham High School teacher Mark Write. 11 Bellingham residents will travel in the group. We held our inaugural meeting in the Bellingham City Hall Council Chambers with the company of our students’ parents.
All Smiles in City Hall.
