SPRING VALLEY — The mayor of Spring Valley’s Italian sister city will be arriving in town next week to explore the area and meet with community members.
Mayor Maurizio Cadegiani of Acquaria di Montecreto will arrive with associate Fiammeta Fiocchi on Jan. 15 and will leave on Jan. 18.
Cadegiani was originally scheduled to visit Spring Valley in December but was forced to cancel his trip at the last minute.
Like before, the city will host a public dinner at Verucchi’s Ristorante at 7 p.m. Jan. 16. Tickets are $16 a person and may be purchased in the city clerk’s office by Tuesday. Tickets include family-style chicken, soft drink, tax and tip. Cash bar reception will be from 6 to 7 p.m.
Last year, Spring Valley City Council passed a resolution declaring Comune di Montecreto, Modena, Italy, a sister city. The resolution states there is a historical link between the two cities through its heritage of Italian emigrant families migrating from Montecreto to Spring Valley between 1890 and 1915.
