San Ramón en Acción
The Community Action Alliance is working with the San Ramón Chamber of Commerce and the municipality to develop a sister city relationship with a city in
he U.S. Recently, a delegation from San Ramón visited with leaders in Quepos from the local chamber of commerce to discuss their successful sister city relationship with Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. This was a wonderful learning experience for the group from San Ramón, who wish to thank their hosts, Harry Bodaan, Cornelio Mesén and Lineth Solano, for their time and insight.
Dec. 17 and 18 mark the last days of the San Ramón Municipality’s Christmas Festival. Scheduled activities include artisan displays, a health festival, a bicycling competition, a host of children’s activities and a concert by Escats. For a full schedule of activities, visit the Community Action Alliance website at www.actionalliancecr.com (see Save the Dates under Latest News).
