Manuel Antonio/ Quepos Tidings
We lost a very dear friend, T. Van Porter, on Nov. 28. A longtime resident of Quepos and Londres, Van had a good life here. He was enjoying a bicycle ride to Playa Rey with friends when he succumbed to a heart attack. He was a kind, loving, caring, soft-spoken man who will be missed by many.
A fundraiser will be held for the children of our community Dec. 11 from 5:30 to 10 p.m. at the Suu Hotel in Manuel Antonio. Sponsored by Suu, the local chamber of commerce and the Aguirre Municipality, the event aims to raise money to buy Christmas gifts for kids of families that lost a lot during the recent flooding. Tickets cost $25 and may be purchased at the door or in advance at the chamber of commerce, the municipality’s offices, Barba Roja, Suu Hotel and La Mansión Inn. Attendees are encouraged to dress in red to match the Christmas theme. Food is included in the ticket price, and drinks may be purchased at the hotel. For information, contact Pamela Svojanovski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
