Flamingo/Potrero News

August 6, 2010

Potrero and Flamingo friends Frank and Vanita Gallo visited Costa Rica for the first time in many years since moving back to the United States. They were homeowners in Potrero and Flamingo for several years and then sold their properties and moved to Granada, Nicaragua, where they now have a rental home. Frank was a Community Connection contributor many years ago and occasionally writes community reports for The Nica Times.

Organized sports and games for kids 6 and up are being hosted at the Jungle Gym Tuesdays and Fridays from 6 to 8 p.m. For more information, contact me at 2654-4902 or at the e-mail address below.

Welcome back to Surfside resident Pat Leonardi, who has returned from an extended trip visiting family and friends in the United States.
