Host families needed for young Japanese musicians

This year Portland and Sapporo will celebrate the 50th anniversary of our sister city relationship (one of the oldest in the US). A delegation of over 200 people from Sapporo will be in Portland for Rose Festival this June. Part of that delegation is 70 young musicians (average age 16). The Sister City Association is looking for families willing to host these youngsters from Friday June 5th through Monday morning, June 8th. Host family responsibilities include providing housing and transporting the visitors to various Rose Festival and anniversary events.
