[Date of Affiliation] March 9, 1957

Riverside

Reason for Affiliation

Members from the Association of University Women of Sendai sent flowers to an injured American soldier at the Sendai American Military Hospital on Mother’s Day in 1951. This information was relayed back to the soldier’s mother who was a member of the same association in Riverside. This event eventually led to the establishment of the sister city relationship between Sendai and Riverside.
