A sweet Sister City welcome

Centre College hosted a dessert reception Monday night for Audrey Wales, the mayor of the Mid and East Antrim Borough Council in Ireland. Wales’ borough includes the city of Carrickfergus, which is Danville’s official Sister City.

Around 40 sponsors and benefactors of Danville’s Sister Cities Commission attended the reception in the Evans-Lively Room of the Old Carnegie Building.
