Glen Rock/Onomachi Summer Exchange Program Marks 26 Years of Sister City Relations
Middle school students from Onomachi, Japan spent the first week of August swimming, doing community service, touring New York City, and having fun with their host families in and around town.
Borough Council members from 1991 – including Carol Knapp, John Butler and Kristine Morieko – joined then-mayor Jackie Kort and current council members at the farewell party.
The Glen Rock Chamber of Commerce and local businesses sponsored the visit. On Community Day, the kids wore Glen Rock T-shirts donated by Liz Behar Cox.
The exchange program was founded by Kristen Stewart O’Brien and Steve O’Brien, G.R.H.S. Class of ’87.
