Maura Bisio and Claudia Alfaro, who have been overseeing the care of Oneida Children’s Park, report that improved maintenance has been possible thanks to events such as the benefit skateboard event last month. A fundraiser has been proposed by Super Compro for the end of the month as well; however, they say they still need to collect money to pay the gardener and hope people will continue to contribute, even as little as a few colones a month. Call Maura at 8919-8253 or Claudia at 8867-5208 to help.
