Guam - The village of Agat is gearing up for tomorrow's Sister Village Partnership Event with Buena Vista, a city within the Philippine province of Guimaras. Agat mayor Carol Tayama says the mayor of Buena Vista as well as the Guimaras vice governor will be on island for the event.
She says this is a historical day for her village, saying, "We will be sharing ideas and hopefully one day, because Guimaras is the only province that can ship mango off-island and hopefully we will get that started and help each other with our Mango Festival."
The sister village signing will take place tomorrow at 5pm at Sagan Biseta in Agat. Mayor Tayama says they will be planting two mango trees, and food and entertainment will also be provided.
