Ohio, German cities mark 50 years as sister cities

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A southwestern Ohio city is getting a visit from a delegation from its German sister city as the two cities celebrate their 50-year partnership.

The delegation from Augsburg, Germany, is visiting Dayton Saturday through Wednesday to mark the occasion.

The delegation is scheduled to participate in a number of activities including visits to the Dayton Air Show, a Dayton Dragons baseball game and tours of the U.S. Air Force Museum.

A 50th Anniversary Youth Concert by St. Stephan's Youth Philharmonic Orchestra and the Dayton Youth Philharmonic Orchestra will be held Tuesday at the University of Dayton. The community also is invited to a tree dedication ceremony at Cooper Park.

Dayton officials say Augsburg in southern Germany is a center for industry, science, art and culture.
