Redlands Sister Cities Association is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization that cooperates with the City of Redlands to promote education, understanding, & friendship at home and abroad. The City of Redlands is located in Southern California approximately 60 miles east of Los Angeles. It is known for the high-quality navel oranges grown in the area, its many Victorian homes, and its outstanding University of Redlands. The Redlands Sister City program began in 1963 when Hino, Japan, became our first Sister City. San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, became our second Sister city in 1967. Our third sister city, Linli, China, was added in 2004. Throughout the years, there have been many visits involving friends from Redlands, Hino, and San Miguel de Allende. In the future, we anticipate professional and civic exchanges with firemen, teachers, and medical personnel in addition to our student program. Your membership will help our program grow and give you the opportunity to make new friends. A general meeting is held annually. The board of directors usually meets monthly.
