A SISTER city connection bound by pioneers George and William Chaffey will be the subject of a Mildura resi­dent’s personal trip to ­further the relationship.

Mildura shares a unique connection with Upland, in California, about 45 minutes east of Los Angeles, as it was also a place where the Chaffey brothers founded a successful irrig­ation district in 1882.

Mildura Council business events facilitator Julie Jewel is taking annual leave and personally funding part of the trip with Mildura Upland Sister City Association funding her flights and some ­expenses.
