Jacó Happenings

June 4, 2010

The Central Pacific Chamber of Commerce has announced ArtPrizeJacó, one of its main cultural projects for 2010. The chamber is calling all artists to enter a piece of artwork to be displayed in Jacó during the art exhibition week July 30 to Aug. 8, when the public will be asked to vote for the top three pieces. First prize is ¢1.5 million (about $2,800), second prize is ¢750,000 ($1,400) and third prize is ¢275,000 ($520). The entry fee is ¢10,000 ($19). For more information, contact the chamber at 2643- 2853 or cenpac.chamber@gmail.com. If you are interested in assisting the committee overseeing the event, please speak with Gabriela at the chamber.

Sofía Costa started Ficus Tree Preschool in Playa Hermosa in September 2007 with just two students. Now, the school has had to be enlarged to include an elementary school to accommodate growth in the area. Kate Reeves, a teacher with more than 20 years of experience, is becoming a partner in the school, and together they hope to have the building project completed by September 2011. Kate will be working with Sofía to organize the new Ficus Tree curriculum, which will be Montessori-based.

The school will be holding open enrollment through June. For information, visit www.ficustreecr.com or contact Sofía or Kate at 2643-3370 or info@ficustreecr.com.

Rosemarie Gainza de Galluccio of Vida Asana on Calle Hermosa will be hosting a special yoga seminar called “Refining the Opening of the Heart” June 12 from 9 a.m. to noon. Using the universal principles of alignment of Anusara yoga, guest instructor Silvia Monge will help participants clarify and refresh alignment issues. For information about the seminar or all-inclusive weekend prices, call Vida Asana at 2643-7108.
