Centerville has two sister cities:
Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
Bad Zwischenahn, Germany
Sister Cities were developed by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1956 to establish greater friends and understanding through direct personal contact between the peoples of the United States and other nations. The Centerville Sister City Committee was established in 1973 to promote good relations with people in foreign countries. The committee sponsors cultural exchange visits between the City of Centerville and our sister cities in Canada and Germany. The program helps build international friendships and cultural understanding.
Waterloo is located west of Toronto in the heart of Ontario's agricultural region. Unlike some parts of Canada where people speak French, in Waterloo, the people speak English.
Bad Zwischenahn is located in the northeastern part of country, close to Hamburg, Germany. This city is in an industrial area and is among the richest nursery producers in the world. Click here for more information about the Sister City Committee.
