The mission of the Wenatchee Valley Misawa Sister City Association is to strengthen the climate of friendship between the cities of Misawa, Wenatchee and East Wenatchee by promoting cultural exchange. The Association is dedicated to furthering the historical significance of the first non-stop Trans Pacific flight by Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon in October 1931.
2012 commemorates the 81st Anniversary of the First Non-Stop Transpacific Flight. The delegation is comprised of local dignitaries, Apple Blossom Festival Royalty, local businessmen and women, teachers and student ambassadors. The delegation has traditionally spent 1-2 days touring Tokyo, 5-6 days staying in Misawa with a family, attending the Misawa festival and attending numerous Misawa City functions.
