Atenas Advisor

September 5, 2012

Atenas’ popular expat hangout, Kay’s Gringo Postres, will celebrate its 7th anniversary on Saturday, with a special southern-style chicken fried steak lunch, with sides of mashed potatoes and gravy and green beans. Reservations not necessary, unless you’re coming with a large group.

Speaking of the café, proprietors Kay and Tom Costello were recently interviewed by reporter Jason Holland for the September edition of the well-known online publication for retirees – International Living. The September cover story features Atenas and two other Costa Rica Central Valley towns, Grecia and San Ramón.

The Atenas community welcomes new residents, recent retirees and sisters, Judy Timson and Roxi Dixon. In addition to both having a background in business, in 1999 they were co-founders of Life Possibilities, a grassroots effort to raise funds to eradicate breast cancer.

Together with a team of women in both Seattle and Portland, Roxi and Judy raised more than $400,000 and secured an additional grant of more than $9 million from the National Institute of Health to support further research. Roxi and Judy will be lending their expertise to the steering committee for the Atenas Annual Charity Chili Cook-off, scheduled for February.
