Kiwanis heard from board members, chaperones and students who particpate in our Sisiter Cities program with Kakuda, Japan.  The Sister Cities program began in 1990 when Mayor Keith McClarnon traveled to Kakuda Japan to visit city officials and company officials from Kehin.  Since then over 300 people have traveled to Kakuda from Greenfield and an equal number of Japanese students have visited Greenfield. 
Each of the students related their experiences and impressions of travel and Japan..  One noted that her host family consisted of four generations living under one roof.  All complimented the Japanese culture of hospitality.  Another noted that they sat on the floor to eat.  All were grateful that many Japanese speak English better than they speak Japanese. 
For information on becoming involved with the program or to join their Facebook page go to http://www.sistercitiesofgreenfield.org.
