The Newport Skiathos Club held its first meeting in April 2013.  Newport and Skiathos were twinned on October 23, 1996 by a resolution read and passed by the Newport City Council.  The mission of the Newport-Skiathos Club is to encourage the public to learn about its Sister City in Skiathos, Greece by promoting the history of the two cities and highlighting opportunities to deepen interaction between them and further our international relationship through cultural, social, education and economic exchange.
