Arenal Report

March 14, 2012

The two spay-neuter clinics held recently in Tilarán and Nuevo Arenal treated just over 100 animals, including many strays as well as household pets. Coordinators Gloria Dempsey and Judy Reisman were assisted by many volunteers who helped with everything from patient registration to postoperative recovery. Special thanks to Ed and Leslie Woods, who each worked two 10-hour days to keep things running smoothly.

A group from the nondenominational organization Led2Serv returned to the Nuevo Arenal area with director Vanessa Puleo. Permanent residents Jeff and Allyson Spencer assisted to complete a special project: A local Tica, well known for her kindness and willingness to help others in need, could not afford to paint her own home. In just three days, the group painted the entire house inside and out. The paint and materials were provided by a donor who asked to remain anonymous. Visit www.led2serv.com for more information and to view pictures of local projects completed by the group.

Patrick (he’s no saint) Hughes promises some rousing Irish drinking songs, wearin’ o’ the green and even green beer at the Sunset Grill for St. Patrick’s Day, Saturday, March 17.
