The Organization of American States was the scene for the Jan. 17 opening party of inauguration week, at which Sister Cities International, with honorary hosts from Afghanistan, Austria, Mexico and beyond, saluted the birthplace of first lady Melania Trump: Slovenia. Founded in 1956, the diplomatic group has gotten presidents since Dwight Eisenhower to serve as honorary chairmen. “We are delighted to celebrate this tradition of presidential support as well as showcase the important role of people-to-people citizen diplomacy in furthering peace and prosperity on a global scale at our inaugural gala,” said Sister Cities’ CEO Mary Kane. Along with great food, guests enjoyed traditional Slovenian music and danced to the high-energy Mood Swings.
