We are SESCA.

W I L L K O M M E N !

In 2001, the Shoreview-Einhausen Sister City Association (SESCA) was incorporated as a

non-profit organization and we started work on an official sister city agreement. The official sister city partnership agreement was formalized in 2003 after many years of hard work by SESCA Vice President Cheryl Wason. SESCA continues to help foster personal relationships between our sister city and residents of the greater Shoreview area as well as provide residents with cultural awareness opportunities.

Our group offers memberships that start at just $15 per year.
