YOU ALL - to everyone involved in making this year's Fur
Ball and Art Auction such a
success. We would especially like to thank our artists for once again graciously
donating their works; Derek Buckner, Michael Cope, Marsha Dahlquist, Arturo Elfeo, Catherine Edwards, Jack Hamilton,
Linda Hamilton, Ezra Katz, Jill Logan, Michael McAllister, Gloria M.V.
Erick Ochoa, Abram Perez, Jennifer Power,
Charles Stewart, Marilu Stewart, Fernando Tames, Catherine Wall, Libusche Wiesendanger and Margaret Woodall.
For our raffle, we wish to thank
Bob Bentley of Casa Bentley, Feinstein Jewelry in Cabo, Susan and Douglas
McPherson, Heriberto of Vivero Heriberto,
Wendy Rains of Wendy Rains Designs, Kathleen Gambogi, Roxanne Sparks,
Vincent Lamote, Susee Spy,
Carol Tarzier, the Cotton Club of Cabo San
Lucas, Gail McAllister, and Maryann Douglas and Reed King of Casa Sophia for
their generous donations.
Thank you to all our volunteers who helped organize and manage
the evening's activities; Susan McPherson, Bill and Roberta Sanders, Sylvia St Clair, Jennifer
Power, Barb Foster, Peter Jackson, Rick Plaia, Amir and Roxanne Aberman,
Sherryl Reily, David Red
Buffalo, Janet Howey, Gary Walseth, Bill Sanders, Alan Thompson, Maryann
Douglas, Reed King, Marie Rose Hagen, Jan
Turner, Debra Webster, and especially
Barbara Perkins and her excellent staff for allowing us to hold this year's
event at her beautiful new patio palapa at La Canada Del Diablo.
And, of course, we offer our
heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all
of you who attended and donated by your ticket purchases, raffle
participation and generous bidding. The preliminary estimate is that the Fur
Ball brought in $13,000. There are
still some expenses and income to be
accounted for, but we know there will be at least that much money available.
These funds are used for the
on-going effort to spay and neuter the dogs and cats of Todos Santos and
Pescadero. Local vets perform these
operations weekly, both in Todos Santos and at El Refugio in Pescadero. In addition, there is an annual clinic when
U.S. vets come to our community and
perform surgeries on two hundred or more dogs and cats. We are told that this year this will take
place in November.
Because of your kindness and
generosity, we will be able to continue to fund local area spay and neuter
efforts this year to further reduce the population of abused, sick and starving
Thank you so much to
all! - Angelique

DANZA DANZA - A WEEKLY COMMUNITY
EVENT - EVERY TUESDAY, 6:30-8PM at La Arca. $50 MN
donation appreciated. All proceeds this month will be donated to Classroom on
Wheels. We'd like to thank all those who have been participating in supporting
the community for the past 2 months. And since this is a community event, we
welcome all of your suggestions. We were fortunate to have Lucia Rose Horan here
with us in January and she will be with us for the next 2 Tuesdays in February.
Lucia is a certified teacher of the 5Rhythms, an ecstatic dance practice
developed by Gabrielle Roth over a lifetime of study in dance, theater, and the
Beginning in March,
Danza Danza will continue to be coordinated by Steve Monaco and Rhoda Jacobs.
The music will vary each week, but the goal of the dance remains the same:
moving until you are moved, finding the still point within, and becoming a free
spirit once again. Rather than having steps to follow, the goal is to find your
own expression and choreography, thereby stretching your imagination as well as
your body. DANZA DANZA is for elders and young people, passionate dancers and
reserved toe-tappers, people who can barely show up, survivors of bad backs, bum
knees or broken hearts.
DANZA DANZA is your own
time to find that special place inside where you are still and the music moves
you. Bring your own water to drink. For information: 044-612-157-6088 rhodajacobs (-at-)yahoo.com - Rhoda Jacobs
