Bainbridge Ometepe Sister Islands

Building Friendships since 1986

30th anniversary delegation – get involved!

Between September 29 and October 10 Bainbridge Island will host twelve Ometepe Islanders in celebration of our 30th anniversary. Here are ways you can get involved to make life-long friends from our sister island:

  • Host a homestay.  We will need two families for each delegate — one from Sept. 29 to Oct. 5 and one from Oct. 5 – 10. Homestay families are responsible for getting their delegate to and from each day’s scheduled activities and providing a warm, welcoming home. For more information and the “application” questions please go to our website at  or contact Kim Esterberg,  842-8148. We hope to arrange the homestays by mid-August.
  • Help with a day’s activities by driving and accompanying the delegates; or host a lunch at your home for a group of delegates. Contact Don Duprey, 780-9029
  • Translate during one of the scheduled activities. Contact Emily Mansfield, 842-4137.
  • Provide transportation for a delegate if their homestay family can’t. Contact Emily Mansfield,
  • Help with the FIESTA on Saturday, October 8th. Contact Libby Anderson, 842-5409.
