Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings
I am going to be out of the country for a month, but I still will be accepting information for the column. I would love to keep it going while I am away, but it is hard to scout out stories from abroad, so I am counting on you. I accept birthdays, openings, closings, births, marriages and anything happening in our area. It is a great way to get the word out, so please send them to me. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
PAWS is having a fundraiser June 23 at La Foresta Resort from 7-10 p.m. It will be an elegant evening of live music with Kezirah (Fuzzy Rojas) and her band. Silent auctions and door-prize drawings will be accompanied by bocas, desserts and two free drinks, all for $25 in advance or $30 at the door.
Proceeds will benefit animal shelter Albergue Casa Verde and provide free spay/neuter clinics to Aguirre Canton. Tickets are available at the PAWS animal booth at the farmer’s market (feria), online at the PAWS CR Facebook page or at the door. For more information, call 2777-1113.
