San Ramón en Acción
The Community Action Alliance wishes to acknowledge and thank U.S. Ambassador Anne S. Andrew, who recently visited San Ramón and participated in a series of activities in support of our community. The activities included a tour of UCR Reserva Biológica Alberto Brenes, where the ambassador was joined by local dignitaries to communicate their commitment to forming a research relationship between UCR San Ramón and the University of Texas, Austin.
The U.S. Embassy also hosted a lunch to discuss Green San Ramón: Environmental and Economic Initiatives, and later in the day moderated a Youth Round Table with more than 30 local youth program coordinators and participants. They discussed youth development and economic prosperity. Ambassador Andrew and other embassy leaders have given overwhelming support for the work of the Community Action Alliance and particularly the Sister City program currently focused on Austin, Texas.
The Community Action Alliance will be hosting an October mixer on Friday, Oct. 26, tentatively scheduled to take place at the local hospital beginning at 11 a.m. Attendees will be updated on upcoming fundraising and cultural events, the Sister City program, and economic development and education initiatives. Details on the mixer can be found at www.actionalliancecr.com.
