Sister City Omitama

The Sister City relationship developed from Japanese interns coming to the Harold Scanlan dairy farm. In 1984 an agreement to form a Sister City relationship between Abilene and Minori, Japan was signed. Since that time adult and student delegations have made annual visits to the others towns.

The Sister City Committee identified student exchanges/youth friendships, daily life experience and cultural experience as the main emphasis of the program.
