NEWPORT NEWS—Sister Cities Newport News (SCNN) recently moved its operations to CITY SPACE at 11820 Merchants Walk, Suite 100 in City Center. The former Jos. A. Banks retail space has been converted to allow SNCC to become a venue to showcase cultural exhibits and host international partners (when exchanges return after the pandemic).
The 4,000-square-foot space has a conference table and chairs for board and committee meetings, and space to host lectures and gatherings. Other organizations and businesses are also able to rent the venue for meetings and events.
For those interested in seeing the new space, SNCC is hosting a Chinese Moon Festival Celebration—their first major event in the new space—on Thursday, September 16 at 6:30pm. The celebration is free for SNCC members and $10 for non-members. Tickets are available on the Sister Cities Newport News website (link is below).
