The timeless children’s story of “Peter Pan” was brought to life at the Tamarindo Diria resort May 13 to 15 by The Beach Nuts Theater Company and Amigos de la Educación. Several CountryDay School students were cast in the amazing production, which showcased the talents of these young kids. The play was a great success thanks to the support of area families and businesses.

Students from the class of Kelly Campbell, founding educator of La PazCommunitySchool, enjoyed a May 13 field trip to Finca del Pollito Muerto, where they got to experience life on a farm. The kids had the chance to ride horses, ride in an oxcart, pet a calf and watch it drink milk from its mom, and watch a farmhand milk the cow. After eating lunch by the river, they went back for a second round of horse and oxcart rides.

The Flamingo Association held a general assembly May 15 to discuss the appointment of a new treasurer as well as community issues. Following the meeting was a special presentation on emergency air service by SARPA-CR and what the company has to offer the community. The afternoon ended with the dedication of Playa Flamingo’s Blue Flag award to the late Pat Brady, who worked tirelessly with the Blue Flag Committee to attain the prestigious distinction for our area.

SARPA-CR’s emergency service consists of a private “flying ambulance” offered for the first time in Costa Rica. This specialized service offers 24/7 coverage with a Bell 212 helicopter or a pressurized Jetstream 32 to transport critical patients to and from any area in or out of Costa Rica. Besides the copilot and pilot, a licensed physician, registered nurse and respiratory therapist will be on board to administer emergency services for adult, pediatric and neonatal needs. Monthly fees range from $7 to $10 for residents and $15 for nonresidents. For more information and package rates, call 2228-2484, e-mail servicioalcliente@sarpacar.com or visit www.sarpacr.com.
