The children of Central Massachusetts and their families proudly and dilegently worked to raise funds for a much needed Rotem Mini-Pumper Fire Truck for our sister city -Afula Israel. Many fundraisers worked hard due to the connections and love they have for the young people from Sister City, Afula, who have visited us here in the U.S. in recent years as Emissaries and educational and cultural exchange students. The relationships that have evolved are ever lasting and promotes a local support of Israel, that is strong and enduring among our childern and their families. How proud our 14 year old daughter was when we visited Afula Israel last month and saw the Rotem Pumper standing guard and ready if needed. It one testement to the success of the sister city concept.
