Applicants Sought for Trip to Door County’s Sister City in China

Preparations are being made for the visit of a delegation from Door County to Jingdezhen, the county’s sister city in China, this fall. Adult applicants are being sought who will make up a group of ten or less who will take part in a four-day excursion to the Chinese city. The delegation will be treated to a tour of a variety of cultural & community events & sights, including the 2014 international ceramic fair. Jingdezhen is located approximately 275 miles southwest of Shanghai. The city is known as the “porcelain capital of the world” & has been creating porcelain & other ceramic products for over 1700 years. All Door County delegation expenses, travel, food & lodging while in China will be provided by the city of Jingdezhen. In 2012, an eight person delegation from China visited Door County. A Door County delegation reciprocated a year later & an invitation for an October Door County visit to China is on the table. A Jingdezhen delegation would then come to Door County in 2015. Applicants, interested persons & those seeking additional information are encouraged to contact Bill Chaudoir at (920)743-3113 or email him at, or contact William Schuster at (920)746-2216 or by email at The Door County delegation will be assembled no later than September 1st.
