San Ramón en Acción
San Ramón de Alajuela, the “City of Poets and Presidents,” is in the process of reinventing itself as “San Ramón, the Clean Canton.” The local chamber of commerce, in cooperation with business, government and community leaders, has announced a new initiative, San Ramón Carbon Neutral, with the goal of becoming the first carbon-neutral canton in Costa Rica. To learn more, contact me at the email address below or at 8333-8750.
The Community Action Alliance, a community-based, action-oriented organization focused on resolving issues and improving the lives of all residents of Costa Rica, will be hosting an Expat Expo Sept. 23 at 11 a.m. The Expat Expo will feature local businesses offering special discounts and promotions for alliance members in San Ramón and the surrounding communities of El Occidente. The expo will also include information on the Community Action Alliance and how you can be of service to your community. For more information, contact Paul Yeatman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 8919-2710, or visit www.actionalliancecr.com.
The alliance has a new development committee whose first project will be a November book sale fundraiser being organized in cooperation with Gringo Central. If you have any books you would like to donate, English or Spanish, contact Louise Whitman Roe at email@example.com.
