Tamarindo Talk

In CEPIA news, 12 women from Matapalo are looking to create a chicken farm in cooperation with the organization. After several meetings, CEPIA has determined that they will need to raise $20,000 to get it off the ground. The International Foundation Education, Training in Farming (FIECAG) has already offered their support for the project.

Another project features eight female artists whose work will appear alongside Costa Rican artist Jackson Guadamuz in Reserva Conchal. And finally, in conjunction with LIGHTFORCE and Global Connections workshops, CEPIA offered important workshops in Brasilito, Villarreal, El Llanito and Potrero to inform children about sexual exploitation with tips on how to report abuse. Now anyone who wants to report an incident can contact CEPIA anonymously. The number is 2653-8533.

It’s that time of year again: The 14th Annual Robert August Surf and Turf. This charity Surf and Golf Tournament, with all its attendant parties, raises money for CEPIA, which helps underprivileged people in our community. Registration prices for the contest (golf and surf) is $200.

This includes golf fee, golf cart and golf lunch, surf inscription with lunch at Lola’s, a catamaran sunset sail, awards party at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp and free entrance to the Azul Profundo Beach Wear Fashion Show & After Party. Each competitor will receive a gift bag with donations from participating sponsors such as Roxy, Witch’s Rock Surf Camp, Azul Profundo and many more. For more information, registration and sponsorship opportunities, contact Laetitia Deweer at cepiacostarica@racsa.co.cr or 8301-8282; or try Van Salcedo at vansalmai@hotmail.com or 8859-4249.

There is a popular Organic Market going on every Saturday in the commercial center where Jaime Pelligro Bookstore (across from Supermercado2001) is located. It kicks off at 8 a.m. and you can pick up locally-grown produce, artisanal cheeses, organic snacks and local crafts. The whole weekly event is sponsored by La Bodega Artisan Foods and Café Tico.

On the last Saturday of every month, gather at the soccer field for a free outdoor movie. The show starts at 7 p.m.
