Promoting a Sister-City relationship between Pleasanton, California, and Tulancingo, Hidalgo, Mexico.
The Pleasanton-Tulancingo Sister City Association (PTSCA) was established in 1983 to promote a Sister-City relationship between Pleasanton, California, and Tulancingo, Hidalgo, Mexico.
Since then, many mayors, city board members, civic leaders, community activists, business people, residents, and students have traveled back and forth as delegates and ambassadors of cultural learning and experience.
The exchanges have crossed all types of organization, from fire departments to high school staff, from orphanages to recycling centers, hospitals and bridges, monuments, libraries and city halls. Often, while visiting, delegations visit other local and regional cultural, historical and nature sites. The first Delegation of fourteen people from Pleasanton visited Tulancingo July 31st to August 4th 1984. That September, from the 19th to the 23rd, seventeen delegates from Tulancingo came to Pleasanton for the first time. Amongst a variety of events they heard a performance by the Amador Valley HS band, participated in a parade on Main Street and visited several local businesses.
