When the Mayor of Chirchik, Naim Sharipov, departed for the Soviet Union following his recent visit to Greensboro, he took with him letters from Greensboro students addressed to students in Greensboro's sister city, Chirchik.

The pen pal exchange was the idea of Kay Troxler, a proponent of international understanding and global peace.When Troxler read about the visit of the first sister city delegation from Chirchik, she inquired about the possibility of Greensboro students exchanging letters with their Chirchik counterparts.

Joseph Mullin and the local Sister City Committee liked the idea.

Troxler obtained letters from Kristi Hartsook, Susanna Troxler, Rose White, Rachel Isaacs, Elizabeth Bullard and Jonathan Bullard. Sharipov agreed to serve as courier, promising to direct the letters to Chirchik's English-language school for reply.

Dale Davidson, a member of the Sister City Committee, has agreed to serve as coordinator for the Greensboro part of the exchange. Students who are interested in participating may contact her at 379-9271.
