City of Harrison officials are preparing to welcome representatives from Harrison's Sister City, Meckesheim, Germany.

A delegation that includes Bürgemeister (mayor) Maik Brandt and his family will arrive in early September. During the Fall Food Truck Rally Sept. 9, Brandt and Harrison Mayor Bill Neyer will sign a formal Sister City Agreement, share remarks and help judge a Porsche competition. Members of Ohio Valley Region Porsche Club of America are expected to line the street along with 20 food trucks, from 4 to 10 p.m. Schumi's MeckseBrau brewery in Meckesheim, Germany and Northen Row Brewery in Cincinnati collaborated to create "Festbier," commemorating the occasion. The beer will be available for purchase at 1860 Taproom & Bottleshop.

Throughout the week prior, the group will tour local businesses and meet representatives from Southwest Local Schools, Greater Harrison Chamber and other organizations. The visitors will learn about the City and surrounding region while building on the Sister City relationship that began in 2019.

Mayor Neyer visited Meckesheim in May 2022. During that visit, Neyer participated in similar festivities and presented a donation to help Meckesheim purchase a new fire brigade vehicle. The City’s van had been totaled while transporting Ukrainian refugees to Germany.

Meckesheim (population 5,200) celebrated its 1,200th anniversary in 2022.
