Flamingo/Potrero News

January 5, 2011

Beach Community Church members offered the communities of Los Pargos in Playa Negra, Matapalo and El Llanito a day each of parties, games, piñatas, refreshments and nativity-scene drama over the holidays. More than 200 kids enjoyed the events.

The Banana Kings gave a performance at Maxwell’s in Surfside before the holidays. Owner Kelly Maxwell prepared special meals for her guests, and everyone had a great time.

Best birthday wishes to Surfside resident Gary Leeds, who marked the occasion by hosting a Hawaiian-style pig roast at his home Dec. 20. About 35 people celebrated with Gary and his 87-year-old mother, who came from the U.S. to join in the fun.
