North Adams Installs Sister City Signs Recognizing Tremosine
Two signs at the southern and western entrances to the city now proudly proclaim its relationship with Sister City Tremosine sul Garda in Italy.
iBerkshires.com reports the 3-foot by 4-foot signs were installed Tuesday near the signs marking the North Adams border — one at Hardman Industrial Park and other near Harriman & West Airport.
The two communities have been in the Sister City program since 2005, when the late Dr. John Moresi and Ed Morandi led the first of what would become an annual trip to scenic Northern Italy.
Many North Adams residents have ancestors who grew up around Lake Garda. Former councilor Marie Harpin, who went on that first trip, joked that the cemetery is full of North Adams names.
Representatives from Tremosine have visited North Adams twice.
