Sister City Visit - Day 9  

Arrivederci Derby

The citizens of Derby bade arrivederci to the visiting delegation from its new Italian Sister City - Puglianello - at an old fashioned American barbeque held at the Kellogg Environmental Center. After a day when they first visited Irving School and then spent time at the state capitol in Hartford hosted by Senator Joe Crisco and Representative Vin Tonucci, the Puglianello delegation was honored and showered with gifts at the informal, but emotional farewell celebration.

All three of the delegates were presented with mementos to commemorate their time in derby. They were surrounded by old friends and relatives and a large number of new friends made during their trip. Click here for more pictures of the last full day in Connecticut.
