FREDERICKSBURG-KATHMANDU SISTER CITY
What a pleasure to be with Mayor Greenlaw and the City Council to present a truly wonderful gift book from the former Mayor Sakya of Kathmandu It was offered as a "token of love" as they say in Nepal and sent to people of Fredericksburg in gratitude and appreciation for the partnership we share.
Moments like this are important reminders of the impact that Sister City connections bring. The book, Hari Prasad Sharma's large art album book, "Nepal Down the Ages" is a treasure and a wonderful way to share a bit of Nepali history and culture. We hope you'll stop by at city hall to see the book on display.
Our annual meeting was a great success! There was much fellowship, fascinating presentations, and Momos from Himalayan Heritage. We welcomed Nepal's Ambassador to the US, Hon. Shridar Khatri and US Ambassador to Nepal (ret) Scott DeLisi.
Board elections were held. Ambassador DeLisi was elected President, Dr. Lekh Nath Adhikari was re-elected as Vice President, and April Peterson joined the board. We invite all of you to renew your membership or join as appropriate.
