Dear Editor:

The Grapevine Sister City Program is inviting interested citizens who might like to join a Sister City Mission, Sept. 20–26 to Krems, Austria. Contact Heather Boehm at 817-410-3184 or HBoehm@GrapevineTexasUSA.com.

A participant fee of $850 per person or $1,365 per couple/duo is required. This will cover your hotel, ground transportation, attractions and select meals. Participants are responsible for booking their own airfare and for arriving in Vienna no later than Sept. 20. This mission is limited to the first 24 applicants.

Over the years, the city of Grapevine has had the pleasure of hosting the following delegations/organizations from Krems in various exchange programs: Krems Marching Band, Krems city delegations and college interns.

During their time in Grapevine, the above delegations had the opportunity to interact with Grapevine/Colleyville host families, GCISD students and teaching professionals, as well as Grapevine city elected officials and department heads. These exchanges resulted in cultural and educational opportunities, allowing us and our guests from Krems the opportunity to learn from each other.

Many Grapevine residents are active in at least one of the three Sister City Committees. Even if you are unable to participate in an exchange/mission, you can still be involved locally with one of the Sister City Committees. Contact Heather at the above phone or email to get involved.
