Mayor Djouha visits Morrisville

On December 4th, Mayor Djouha from Blolequin, Cote D’Ivoire (the Ivory Coast of Africa), paid a visit to Morrisville Borough. Blolequin is Morrisville’s first Sister City. Morrisville Councilmembers Todd Sanford, Fred Kerner, Nancy Sherlock and Corryn Kronnagel showed Djouha the sites of Morrisville, including Graystones, Summerseat and a wonderful pizza dinner at La Villa!

Police Chief George McClay was also able to take time away from his afternoon to sit and chat with Mayor Djouha, who spoke of the many changes facing his town and country. It is becoming an “emerging city” of Africa, with Djouha pushing for many advances in the communications with his residents. Mayor Djouha actually lived in America for 20 years and still has family in Maryland, so he frequently comes to the US. He was enamored of Morrisville and its amazing history and looks forward to returning soon, perhaps to host a discussion at the high school.
