Rapid City Friends are in Nikko

As you read this, Travis Bellefeuille, Shawna Hall, Joan Clemens, and Lois Wolfe are taking in the sights, tastes and smells of Nikko in Fall.  Pictured above in front of the 5 storied pagoda near Toshogu shrine, they are reportedly having a great time and doing us all proud by representing our city well.  To follow their trip and see more pictures as they come in, find us on facebook.  They are set to return on Tuesday, Oct 23rd.  
Kevin and Chimi

Member News

The lure of Japan claims another pair of Japan sister city members.  Kevin and Chimi Krejcarek, who have been with the organization from its beginnings, have landed a long sought after position in Tokyo and will be relocating shortly.  The two have been a "power couple" in their time and energy that they have devoted to this organization.  Kevin's strong efforts in the public relations department have certainly gotten our name out there time and time again. Chimi's energy and insights brought our cultural events to the next level. Their new home will not be too far from Chimi's family.  It is a bitter sweet moment for RCNCSCA as we wish them well in their new endeavors and ask that they keep in touch.

Terror in The Dark

Setup for the Terror in the Dark Haunted House is under way.  You can help raise money for the sister City by volunteering some time to setup or tear down the haunted house.  For the really ambitious, you can even act!  It's at the Soule Building at the Central States Fair Grounds.  Go to their volunteer page, let them know that you are there for the Japan sister city and have a blast!
Cheryl Mead

AAA Agent supports RCNCSCA

Cheryl Mead with AAA lent her time and talents to help put together our recent autumn and summer excursions.  She was able to help set up our travelers and give them confidence that their trip would turn out well.  Not least amongst her talents was her ability to navigate thru travel insurance options and make it seem understandable.  Thank you Cheryl; we hope we can get you on one our trips next time.
