Safe and sound: Exchange students from Tsuruta, Japan (Hood River's sister city) have been in town all week, staying with host families and experiencing small town life in Oregon. The Hood River Sister City Committee will donate all of the money raised at its annual fundraiser (the Taste of Tsuruta, April 2) to Tsuruta town, where they will choose how the money will be used for disaster relief efforts. Stay tuned for more information, or contact committee member Adam Lapierre at alapierre@hoodrivernews. Tickets for the event are on sale now at Cascade Travel in downtown Hood River.
