Bel Air residents, say hello to your new sister city: Narva, Estonia.
The "friendly exchange relationship" with Narva, a first for The Town of Bel Air, got underway Wednesday morning at Town Hall with a little high-tech help.
Mayor Robert Reier and other town officials were joined by Maryland-Estonia Exchange Council Chairman Toivo Tagamets. They chatted via Skype with several Narva officials, including Mayor Eduard East, who signed the exchange document in the Baltic city.
The three-way Skype also included Deputy Chief of Mission Tanel Sepp and several representatives from Maryland-Estonia Exchange Council, who were at the Estonian Embassy in Washington, D.C., an embassy spokesperson said.
Narva officials invited Bel Air leaders to visit this summer or fall, and Reier likewise extended the invitation for them to visit Bel Air.
