“Werner is involved, sociable and trustworthy.”

Werner has been a volunteer for the Sister City Association since 2007, when his son was selected by the association to spend 3 weeks as an exchange student in Kashiwa, Japan. First, he began assisting at the annual Bunka-Sai, the Japanese Cultural Festival Fundraiser. Steadily, he became more involved, filling a Board vacancy, then becoming a Chairman of the committee that arranges all of the activities for the exchange students. January 2012, he became president of the Sister City Association. On behalf of the City of Torrance’s Volunteer Program, we would like to congratulate¬†Werner on his great service.
