News and Events, Questions and Answers

El Pescadero Winter Festival Postponement - In a time when integration of the community has never been more important, it is with regret this event is cancelled for Tuesday, Dec 20. This decision was prompted for numerous reasons: current saturation point of fundraising events & activities, avoidance of conflict/confusion between two similarly-named events for back-to-back nights, the lack of basic local resources and support currently available for a quality event.

Upon the success of last year’s event, we know this format has merit and be assured you may look forward to a 2012 Winter Festival. With time we expect community dynamics will be in a better position to support and the focus on the organization to promote outstanding community service.

Advanced raffle ticket holders will be notified and funds returned and other participants informed. We appreciate those local supporters and their commitments made to this event. We look forward to a successful 2012 and continued expatriate support. Thanks to the Mexican contributors who responded positively. That makes a big statement considering their financial resources. In the spirit of the season, we will continue to collaborate to make a positive difference in our community. - Amigos De El Pescadero, pesccom [- at -] hotmail.com, Pescadero

Regarding Recent Skating Rink Info - Several people pointed out that the skating rink will be set up at the Municipal Palace, not at the State Palace as I reported in the La Paz Gringos forum. The Municipal Palace is where one goes to pay property taxes or pull permits, near the Soriana plaza, the fire station, the Red Cross, and fortunately much closer to the new hospital than the State Palace. - Les Carmona, La Paz

Great Vet Experience - Responding to a notice in BWO I took my new puppy to David Martinez Salazar in his new clinic a couple of doors south of Barajas. The place is sparkling clean, spacious. David took swabs of her infected ears and checked it out under the microscope on premises. He was competent and gentle with injections and clipping her nails... I'd given up when she screamed. David's manner was so reassuring to her she didn't resist him at all. The experience was altogether positive. Thanks David, Janel - Janel Beeman
