News, Events and Announcements


Dia Del Tambo - Volunteers needed to help with The Palapa Society's 5th annual Dia del Tambo on Sunday, April 26, 1 - 3. This is a great community event for children and their families. Teams of kids and adults come together to paint tambos which are distributed throughout the community for trash collection. Volunteer time: 3-4 hours To volunteer or for more information call The Palapa Center at 1450-299 or email us. - Donna Viglione, palapasociety [-at-] yahoo.com, 1450-299


Children Sleeping On 15 Year Old Matresses - 70 children in our Albergue Escolar No.3 Prof. Francisco Cota M.,known also as the Internado, on La Cachorra Rd. are sleeping on old matresses, being feed on a budget of 40 pesos per child for 3 meals a day. Though they spend 5 days week in the Internado there is no budget for sports equipment, muscial instruments, art supplies or for extra books for research or study. The Internado is a Mexican boarding system for Rancho children who live too far away to commute daily. The documentary "Rancho Aparte" about these children was shown at the Todos Santos Film Festival this Feb. Prof.Rodolfo Alvarez Arce and his caring staff provide a loving clean homelike atmosphere but are strained with their limited budget.

I was so touched by the colorful and joyful place they have created I have opened a bank account in their name and Leonardo Perel and I have made a deposit as a start. We hope you will join us and either deposit a gift in account #2673527387 in Bancomer of Todas Santos. No amount is too small to make a difference. Or, better yet, visit the school and made your donation directly. All money stays at this Internado and donors, upon request, will be give a report of how the money is used. Donors giving 50$US or more will receive a copy of "Rancho Aparte." Just present your bank receipt to Prof Rodolfo or to me. Thank you for making a difference in these students lives. - Scotty Mclemore, scottybcs [-at-] hotmail.com, 612-10-05872

"Peace Wear", Unique Handmade Creations by Shawn & Bonnie O, is having an Easter Sale Saturday, April 11th from 4-7PM. Thank goodness for DST now we don't have to worry about driving in the dark:). We have lots of new items like crocheted ponchos and beaded peace sign earrings that really rock. Come and take a look. Peace, Shawn & Bonnie O. P.S. Flashback will be playing at the Sandbar on Easter throughout the day, with BBQ, and an egg hunt. Fun!

Directions to our home: On the highway to Pescadero go past the Pemex and past the turnoff into town. Drive 2/10 of a mile and you will see a small store "Mini Super Brody" on the left -- they have a small Pacifico sign out front. Directly across from the store turn right (toward the water). Drive aprox. 1 mile and you will see a large walled community with a gate and guard house. Turn right just before the guard house. Then turn left almost immediately. Follow the big wall toward the beach. At the beach (and an electric pole) take a right. We are the first house on the right. The house is large, white, has blue and green trim, and lots of palms out front. - Shawn And Bonnie O'neill, sunburntgringos [-at-] hotmail.com, 612-134-0141
