Even though we missed the usual hugs, catching up with amigos and shared meals, the second online BOSIA Annual Meeting , on Nov. 9, was a success. We heard reports from all of the committees, including the Library Committee, Projects Committee and Scholarship Committee. Things are still a little slower than normal due to the unusual year, but we are still working to foster friendships and connections between our two islands.
We were lucky to listen live to Dora and Santiago in the office on Ometepe. Also, Jim Starrs and Jackie Finckler shared the news that they will be traveling down in December with plans for a long term stay, working with the Ometepe staff in the office and tracing the paths of former scholarship students. As fun as our zoom meeting was, we look forward to when we can gather in person again.
