First volunteer meeting will be held Jan. 17 at 10 AM at Restaurante Casa Arcadia on Playa Principal.
2020 is starting off on a great foot, the Joyce Cote Memorial Science Lab will be completed in about 2 weeks fully funded by her loyal friends. What a great tribute to Joyce! It gets even better though as I met with a couple last Friday and they want to pay for all the equipment needed for a state of the art science lab. Yahoo!
We have already had two very generous donations one from the Fletcher’s for $5000. USD and another from Susy Fletcher’s cousin for $2500. USD.
Normally we complete our projects by the end of August but this year we are still building as I type this. Thanks to the generous support from our local mayor Jorge Sanchez Allec who has donated over a million pesos in concrete and labor.
The Bachilleres High School we built a couple of years ago has a shiny new Basketball court that was finished in December. This school is like no other with 70% of the students qualifying to attend university. Pretty good stats considering Mexico only graduates 12% of students from the university.
All of our secondary and university students have sponsors currently but we are desperately in need of sponsors for Casa Para Niños where our bright young scholars begin their road to life-changing higher education. For $350 USD a year you can be a part of this incredible journey for them.
Check out our new schedule of events below. Even more this year complete with a week-long art exhibit- auction featuring Guadalupe Gaytan, at the museum and a dance after the welcome cocktail party with Steve and Frienz. Start conserving your energy it’s going to be a great week!
Saludos and see you soon.
