San Ramón en Acción

August 31, 2011

This weekend marks the culmination of the Fiestas Patronales de San Ramón, the annual celebration offering thanks to the patron saint of San Ramón. This year’s theme is “San Ramón, una sola familia,” and we are indeed all one family. Please join us and share in the spectacular activities, including parades, music, dancing and traditional food. For a schedule of activities, go to www.actionalliancecr.com

The social and cultural heart of the expat community in San Ramón is Gringo Central, a well-established group that organizes fantastic outings throughout Costa Rica. To learn more about what’s going on in San Ramón and upcoming Gringo Central adventures, join the group for weekly coffee Thursdays at 10 a.m. at Café Delicias. Also, visit www.gringocentralsanramon.blogspot.com

The Community Action Alliance will be hosting a “T’ai Chi Chih Workshop: Joy Through Movement,” led by Anita Vestal, Sept. 28 from 9 a.m. to noon at the El Castillo de Relajamiento, aka “the cabinas.” The cost is ₡6,000 ($12) for alliance members and ₡8,000 ($16) for nonmembers. If you attended the previous workshop, please note that new moves will be included in this one. Space is limited; to reserve your spot, email mike@styles.com. For more information about t’ai chi chih, go to www.anitavestal.net

The San Ramón community extends a special welcome to incoming U.S. Consul General Robin Haase. We hope you enjoy your time in Costa Rica and look forward to a great working relationship.
