Ellen Mumford (left) conveys wishes for a good trip to Judy Arnold as she and five other Dixon Sister Cities Association members leave to visit two of Dixon's Sister Cities: Castlebar, Ireland, and Herzberg, Germany. While in Ireland, the Dixon group will also visit Dublin and many of County Mayo's famous sites. In Germany, Octoberfest visits to Dresden and Munich are planned. Dixon Sister Cities members last visited Castlebar in 2005, and Herzberg in 2009.
