San Ramón en Acción

December 13, 2011

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). 

If you believe in the importance of community, volunteerism and service, the Community Action Alliance is offering 2012 memberships at its 2011 rates through the end of the year. For ₡8,000 ($16) per year, you can be a part of one of the most dynamic expat-based community groups in Costa Rica. For information, visit the alliance’s website or email the address below.
