A delegation of 15 students accompanied by four adults from Edmonds’ Sister City — Hekinan, Japan — arrived in Edmonds Thursday. Despite considerable jet lag, the group rose early on Friday to be greeted by Mayor Earling at City Hall.

Earling got an overwhelming response to his offer to sit in the Mayor's chair, with each student, chaperones, and other staff taking the opportunity.  One of the first to jump in was Megumi Nagura.

Look for them around town over the next several days, and especially during Tuesday’s celebration of the 125th year since Edmonds, formerly George Brackett’s lumber camp, became an official “village fourth class” of Snohomish County.

  1. How nice, especially to be here for our 125th bday. Can I assume that we also send delegations to Japan? How would I find out information about that, who knows? Thank you.
