In just two days, on Sun., Dec. 9, Ladies of the Lake is holding its 3rd Annual Art Show/Christmas Bazaar Fundraiser. Please help us help others. Donations of the following items are needed: new or used clothing, shoes, books and magazines, CDs and DVDs, household items, knick knacks, kitchen utensils, furniture, bedding, appliances/electronics ( if not in working order, please let us know ), in other words, anything saleable.
Drop off locations for donations: for the Tilarán/Tronadora area, Rene Aoki of Re/Max Rico Realty is accepting donations at their office on Tronadora Road 200 meters from the turn-off of the Lake Road (follow the signs). For the Nuevo Arenal area, Marisol at the Iguana Tropical Bar and Grill (formerly Rumours) will take your donations. The Iguana is located next to Banco de Costa Rica across from the service station.
If you have items to donate that you would like picked up from your home, call Ruth Fountaine at 8371-3015 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Spaces are available for artists/artisans, specialty take-away foods, services, local activities, or hold your own garage sale. Space rental is $10 per table. Proceeds go to support local community outreach.
The Bazaar will be located indoors at the huge salon area of Plaza del Café on the Lake Road opposite the turnoff to Sabalito/Tierras Morenas starting at 11 a.m. Thanks to Ruth Fountaine for her assistance with this report.
