[ARCHIVED] Delegation now forming for December visit to La Rochelle, France

NR delegation arrives in LR greeted at train station 2017

The City of New Rochelle is proud of its founding by Huguenots from La Rochelle, France, and its ongoing relationship with the City of La Rochelle, led and cultivated over the years by the Sister City Committee and its Convenor, Peter Korn.

In 2013, La Rochelle's City Hall suffered great damage due to a fire. Extensive work has been done to rehabilitate the structure and a celebration commemorating its re-opening will take place on December 6, 7 & 8, 2019. The Mayor of La Rochelle, Jean-Francois Fountaine, has invited a delegation from the City to participate and City Council Member/Deputy Mayor Barry Fertel will be heading up the group. The City is seeking community input from those interested in making this trip. Delegates will be responsible for their own travel and accommodation expenses.

Council Member Fertel, Peter Korn and members of the Sister City Committee will hold an information meeting on Thursday, June 13, 2019 @ 7:00pm at the New Rochelle City Hall Annex, 90 Beaufort Place, Room B-1. Please RSVP to the Sister City Committee at  SisterCityNR@gmail.com .
