2017 travel to Stade Germany: August 31 - September 11


Adult exchanges are 10-day visitations in Stade, Germany; or Sutherland Shire, Australia, during which members stay in the homes of Sister Cities members in those countries. The following year, Lakewood Sister Cities members provide housing for visitors from the country they visited.
