In addition to planning the annual Have a Heart Charity Golf Tournament each February, the Amigos de la Educación also helps out local schools. They received a donation of $2,080 for 1,000 additional textbooks for six schools in Matapalo, Cartagena, Portegolpe, El Llanita and La Garita Nueva. Right now, the organization is looking for volunteers for their Pedestrian Safety Program for six additional grade schools, as well as people to do service at the 13th Annual Have a Heart event. To volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 2653-1945 Mon.-Fri., from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Over at Pura Aventura farm, they have added a new tour to the already-popular canopy zip-line and horseback riding tours. Now you can mountain bike on the property. Contact them at 8883-5703.
And finally, if you have driven down past the Automercardo recently, you may have noticed that Don Fernando’s meat market is no longer in business across the street. Too bad, they had great cuts of meat for sale.
