Welcome to Sister Cities of Morgan Hill, CA

Sister Cities is an all-volunteer membership organization formed in 2002. Our local program is modeled on Sister Cities International (www.sistercities.org), a world-wide organization fostering connections between cities, counties, or states. Connections between cities are usually based on shared similarities that can expand into a more thorough cultural exchange.

Interested in joining Sister Cities?

We meet on the fourth Thursday of each month at the Centennial Recreation Center on Edmundson Avenue, Room 1, at 7:00 p.m.
