Editor:

My wife and I recently spent the day re-exploring the quaint town of La Conner, Wash., only an hour drive from the U.S. border.

We were pleasantly surprised to see this sign at the entrance advertising that La Conner is the sister city to White Rock!

Who knew? The sign even encourages people to visit us!

As we walked around, a man welcomed us with a very friendly greeting, asking us if we needed any information about the town.

He was thrilled when I told him we were visiting from their sister city.

How come we don’t have a similar sign somewhere?
