Recent visits by Concordians to San Marcos have yielded an awareness of multiple new opportunities, along with a chance to build new relationships with townspeople.
The Sister Cities Committee has been very happy with youth visits organized with the Trinitarian Congregational Church of Concord, Concord Carlisle High School, and individuals who have championed sports and community-service initiatives. Through these visits, countless Concordians have made direct contributions of their friendship and physical labor to the people of San Marcos, all the while learning about Nicaragua with a spirit of generosity.
High school students have begun to plan school-to-school interactions via Skype and to encourage possible visits of San Marcos students to Concord.
Further infrastructure projects await, building upon the success of the well project in El Uval that has brought urgently needed water to a remote village of the municipality.
The committee always welcomes and eagerly solicits fresh ideas from members of the Concord community.
