Teens from Tulancingo arrive Sunday

The Pleasanton Tulancingo Sister City Association teen exchange is under way, with the six Mexican students arriving in town Sunday. They will stay in Pleasanton through July 8, then return to Tulancingo with the Pleasanton teens, who will visit through Aug. 5.

Meanwhile the teens have become acquainted via emails and video-chatting, said association spokeswoman Anne Richert. She met the Tulancingo teens when she visited the town with the Pleasanton delegation in April

"All of them are amazing," Richert said. "It was very exciting, and all are really looking forward to the summer."

The community is welcome to a welcome reception being held June 13. For more information, visit http://ptsca.org/.

The teens will also enjoy a trip to San Francisco, an Oakland A's game, an overnight stay in Monterey, a 100th-year celebration at the Alameda County Fair Parade, Rotary luncheons and July 4th in the Park. A Farewell Picnic will be held July 7. Sister-city members are also inviting the teens to family dinners in their homes.

The Pleasanton teens participating in this year's exchange are, from Foothill, Sophia Angst and Isabela Marina Castaneda; from Amador Valley, Sunyoung Kye, Nikki Van Wagner, Anna Wishnowsky and Rita Zwiefel.
