Tacoma sister city tour today

Delegates from George’s sister municipality, Tacoma in the United States, are currently in town for a range of outreach programmes in which local communities benefit.

The group made a quick stop at the office of Acting Executive Mayor Charlotte Clarke and was handed a painting by Thembalethu-based artist Desmond Jandyck as a keepsake of their visit. Their other stops today include a visit to George Tourism and a firefighting demonstration at the Denneoord Fire Base.

From left to right are Tacoma Deputy Mayor Keith Bloder, Tacoma Mayor Victoria Woodards, George Fire Chief Neels Barnard, Acting Executive Mayor Charlotte Clarke, and George Municipality councillors Hendrik Ingo, Iona Kritzinger, Raybin-Gibbs Figland, Jacqulique Von Brandis and Cecil Noble.
