Saturday, May 7, was cleanup day in the Flamingo and Potrero beach and mangrove areas. Twenty-seven volunteers participated in cleanup efforts and picked up a whopping 179 kilograms of trash. The Flamingo Beach Resort supplied water and snacks to all volunteers. Thanks go out to everyone who pitched in to keep our communities beautiful.
Dancers from Educarte, La Paz Community School and Country Day School will perform “An Evening of Dance” at Beach Community Church May 27 at 5:30 p.m. Come out and support the art of dance! Bring money for the suggested donation of ₡1,000 ($2) and the bake sale.
Flamingo friends Scott, Staci, Savannah and Sage Huggins have permanently returned to the United States but will be returning periodically to assist with their Serve One mission to help the town of El Llanito. We thank them for their patronage, wish them well and look forward to seeing them on their return visits.
A big thank-you goes to the Mystics of Flamingo for their $1,500 donation to the Pat Brady Scholarship Fund, which will help pay for uniforms and books for the 2011 school year for three continuing high school students and one university student from Potrero. All the students express their gratitude. Many thanks to fund chair Elizabeth Watson for her continuing support to keep kids in school.
