The Christian Surfers group has gotten together and organized the Pura Vida Church. They meet on Wednesday nights at 7:30 p.m. and the pastor is Juan Diego Rojas, better known as Pano. You can find the Christian church on the second floor of the building directly in front of the Best Western Tamarindo Vista Villas.
Last month’s “Have a Heart Golf Tournament” at Hacienda Pinilla, which benefits Amigos de la Education, was a great success. They exceeded $25,000 for scholarships for 13 local youths and also raised money for books, building improvements, desks, teacher workshops, and other items for four high schools and seven elementary schools in the Tamarindo area.
The first place team in the golf tournament was John Logan, Ricardo Caas, Chad Fisher and Joost Hauwert. Congratulations Barry and Suyze Lawson who do an amazing job organizing this event every year.
