The Glen Rock and Onomachi Japan exchange turn 26!


This year the Glen Rock and Sister city Onomachi Japan exchange turns 26. This year the Japanese  middle school students  will be here from August 1 – August 7th.

These middle school students come over for a whirlwind tour of Glen Rock and the NYC area.  This year they are adding a community day that will allow them to give back to Glen Rock for all the years of hosting them.  Last year  BTN hosted 2 Girls and loved the experience.
