The objectives of the Friendship Association are to establish, promote, and foster a spirit of friendship and closer ties between the citizens of St. Augustine and the citizens of Baracoa. As a member you are asked to abide by the principles of the Friendship Association and to help us build bridges of friendship. You may be asked to address questions about the organization and its goals. A good tool to help you familiarize yourself with our initiatives is our website. We ask you at all times to be respectful of the laws of both countries.
