At our January meeting, 19 TCC members and guests turned out for great food and conversation at the Imperial Chinese Restaurant. Beth Hendrix, Executive Director of Denver Sister Cities International, spoke about the history and current programs associated with Denver’s 10 sister cities. In 1948, Denver gained its first sister city, Brest, France, the second sister city relationship in the U.S.
