Welcome to our web site. In 1988, when we began our relationship with Somoto, Nicaragua, we didn't
imagine we'd be able to tell the world about our activities in this way. In cooperation with members of APRODES (the Association
for the Development of Somoto) our Merced/Somoto Sister City
Committee fosters friendship and understanding between the citizens
of our two cities. I invite you to learn about our group and
to join us in our many projects.
