A tree was dedicated Monday, Aug. 19, at Superior's Friendship Garden in memory of Josef Braeu, a Sister City Commission member who died in April.

Braeu was instrumental in developing and maintaining the Japanese-style garden in Billings Park.

Superior's Sister City relationship with Ami-machi, Japan, started 22 years ago.
