What is York Twinning? Over 50 years ago, a group of persistent, dedicated folks, separated by thousands of miles, embraced the concept that by breaking down barriers of communications, a bond of friendship could be created among peoples of different cultures, of different regions, of different ancestry. What evolved was a people-to-people visitation exchange buoyed by the President of the U.S., local political leaders, educators, and everyday citizens. York has been twinned with Arles, France since 1954 and Leinfelden-Echterdingen since 1981, creating "many years of international friendship!"
