Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings
We bid a sad good-bye to Leo Gonzales, who, after six years of playing guitar with Fuzzy Rojas, is leaving to go back to Colombia. He will be missed.
A belated happy birthday to Juan Sánchez, who celebrated his big 50th recently with his wife, Desiree, and friends.
Miguelito’s 2×1 Pizza in Quepos is issuing a challenge to business owners and anyone who wants to help with donations of dog and cat food for Doña Carmen, who houses and takes care of many stray animals from Quepos and Manuel Antonio. Miguelito’s goal is to collect 50 pounds of dog or cat food per month for the next year. All donations can be dropped off at the restaurant, next to Musmanni. They are also accepting cash donations. Miguelito’s will give ¢500 ($0.85) off a pizza in exchange for two cans of cat food, or ¢1,000 ($1.70) off a pizza for a 10-pound bag of dog or cat food. For more information, stop by Miguelito’s.
Each year, a group of high school students comes to the area as part of Broadreach Academic Treks’ Primate Studies Group to study primates and do service work. This year’s group did an incredible job, so we want to give a big thank-you to Elissa Krakauer, Nathan Trappe, Monika Siekelov, Shayna Orens, Lindsey Schader, Emma Krass, Harry Cammer, Catherine Ruscica, Honor Kilbourne, Connor Jackson, Eliza Decroce-Movson, Dru Knox, Will Taylor and Jennifer Schonfeld. Their hard work was greatly appreciated.
