Trollhättan, Sweden Officially Becomes Tempe’s 10th Sister City
Trollhättan, Sweden officially becomes Tempe’s 10th Sister City in May 2015. However, there has been a collaboration between Tempe and Trollhättan since we first met in 2008. We have enjoyed and have had successful exchanges of student delegates since 2010, as well as professional delegate exchanges and the very first International Chef to cook at Hackett House was Peter Erikson, Professional Chef and Vice Mayor of Trollhättan, in October 2014. Tell me more about Trollhättan… The name “Trollhättan” comes from folkloristic tales. People once believed that large trolls lived in the river Göta älv and that the islands in the […]
Councilman Corey Woods Speaks to Youth Group
The first meeting of the Tempe Sister Cities Youth Group occurred on Sunday, September 14. Twenty-one members were in attendance, and seven were underclassmen from various local schools. The sophomores, juniors and seniors were inspired by guest speaker Councilman Corey Woods. Mr. Woods shared his personal path into the world of politics and city government. He challenged the audience to take a self- inventory of skills, interests, passions, and consider how even at their current age, that each one can be making a difference in their school, their neighborhood, and their community. He invited them to set a goal for […]
Tales from Beaulieu sur Mer, France
How many people can say they’ve been snorkeling in the south of France? Not many! But I’m one of the few who has been lucky enough to have this experience, and it happened to me this past summer in Beaulieu sur Mer, France. One humid morning in France I woke up at 5 am to be driven to the top of Eze Village to carpool for 3 hours to Port-Cros, an island in the Mediterranean, where Amanda, TJ, Avery, our French siblings and I boarded a boat to get to the island where we would spend the day snorkeling in […]

Tempe Delegates In Regensburg
Every year all the Tempe delegates upon their return think that the country they visit was by far the best and that their experience was the most impactful. I wish I could say that the eight delegates traveling to Germany are different, but in truth we too think our experience by far has to be the best. How could our summer get any better? Our adventures in Germany have been so diverse and exciting every day that there is no way to give it justice through explanation. On the first day of our arrival we were greeted by our smiling […]
