Last week’s Remember When mystery photo showed a delegation from Tracy that went to Memuro, Japan, in September 1989 to help cement relations with the city on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido that was soon to become Tracy’s Sister City. Left to right: Ina and City Councilman Clyde Bland, Sue and Mayor Richard Hastie, Tracy Sister City Chairman Ken Yasui, City Attorney Bill Coats and Gladys Ceciliani.

Identifying those in the photo were Evelie Grebil, Cindy Schack, Linda Potter and Richard Giambastini.
