A crowd gathers in the Old Mill across from REI at the unveiling of a plaque celebrating Bend’s sister city, Belluno, Italy, on Tuesday. The students standing in front of the plaque participated in the first youth exchange with Belluno. Five students from Bend spent a month there this summer with a host family and during August are hosting their exchange brothers and sisters in Bend.
