Selectman Chair Matt Muratore:

“This is a twin city relationship that weʼve re-established and weʼve made some really great inroads with regard to economic redevelopment, education as well as the Plymouth anniversary and working together on this world-wide event.”

Gifts were exchanged and Muratore, on behalf of the town of Plymouth, Mass. accepted a painting showing the city of Plymouthʼs Harbor and the Mayflower Steps.
