The Central Pacific Women’s Group’s second bake sale to benefit the CEN-CINAI preschool was extremely successful in raising funds to repaint the school. They are aiming to paint on Saturday, March 19, starting at 8 a.m., and are seeking volunteers to help. For details, call Jane Swidler at 2643-1248. The group extends a huge thank-you to Balcón del Mar for hosting its monthly meetings for more than three years. Balcón del Mar now needs that space, however, so Morgan’s Cove Hotel is providing the group with space for its March 16 meeting, featuring guest speaker Henry Karczynski of Villa Vanilla. Morgan’s Cove is south of the municipality offices, just past the CEN-CINAI.
