Applewood was pleased to host members of an eight-person delegation from Kanageski, Japan and the Amherst Selectboard. On September 30, they toured Applewood and held a planning meeting over dinner. The visit, called “Celebrating the Past, Welcoming the Future,” marks the twentieth anniversary of the sister city friendship between Kanageski and Amherst. The Amherst Kanegaski Committee promotes friendship and on-going relations with Kanegasaki, Japan through special events and ongoing contacts between residents or government bodies of the two communities. Each year a group of high school students also have a cultural exchange.
