55th Anniversary Visit

From May 9 through May 14, 2013, the Rennes-Rochester Sister Cities Committee celebrated the 55th anniversary of the “twinning” of our two cities.

Keeping up the tradition of official visits to one another’s city every five years, Rochester welcomed 14 delegates from Rennes, the capital of the French province of Brittany. Four of the delegates from France held various municipal government positions and ten were from Rennes’ own Sister Cities Committee.

As you will see in the photos, many activities kept our French visitors busy over their their six days in Western New York. Included were visits to the Grand Canyon of the East (Letchworth Park) and one of the modern wonders of the world, Niagara Falls.
