Recently, Kimberley Richardson of the Aruba Tourism Authority had the great pleasure to honor Aruba’s loyal and friendly visitors as Distinguished Visitors of Aruba and Goodwill Ambassadors of Aruba. The Distinguished visitor certificate is presented on behalf of the Minister of Tourism, as a token of appreciation to the guests who visit Aruba 10 years and more consecutively. The Goodwill Ambassador certificate is presented on behalf of the Minister of Tourism, as a token of appreciation to the guests who visit Aruba 20 years and more consecutively.
The honorees were couple Salvatore & Rosalia Agrusa living in the United States, but originally from Italy, and their daughter Francesca Biundo who was accompanied by her husband Pietro Biundo as well, and all were honored as Goodwill Ambassadors of Aruba. Couple Francesca & Pietro brought their four kids down; Antonino Biundo, Caterina Biundo, Salvatore Buindo, and Rosialia Buindo, and all their kids were honored as Distinguished Visitors of Aruba. Couple Salvatore & Rosalia Agrusa not only fell in-love with the island, but also brought children, grandchildren, friends and many more to our beautiful island.
These lovely people stated that they love the island very much, especially for its year-round sunny weather, nice sandy beaches and picturesque sunsets, delicious variety of foods, its safety, and Aruba’s warm and friendly people who have become like family to them.
Richardson together with their wonderful neighbor Rosemarie Leest put together this honoring for this great tight-knit family. Upon arrival at the Agrusa’s and Biundo’s family home in Boegoeroei, Richardson presented the certificates to the honorees, handed over some presents and also thanked them for choosing Aruba as their favorite vacation destination and as their home-away-from-home.
