Bahía del Sol hosted a Tapas Night and Happy Hour Oct. 14 at its restaurant in Surfside. Live entertainment was provided by Don Carlos, who is originally from Uruguay and became a Canadian citizen in 1997, and Dave Nelson, from Vancouver, Canada. The duo has played a variety of classical and pop rock music together since 2006 at venues throughout our beach communities.
Beach Community Church recently welcomed Josh Hoke, from the U.S. state of Indiana, as its worship leader. Josh came to Costa Rica in early September, but had to return to the U.S. a couple of weeks ago after being hospitalized for a serious, unexpected medical problem. We hope for his speedy recovery and return.
Happy birthday to JR Wilson, who celebrated his special day with family and friends at Maxwell’s in Surfside, and to Tanya Sherman, also of Surfside.
