December Meals For The Hogar Del Niño - Hello Hogar Del Niño Friends, if you would like to participate in a meal for the kids please contact Lisa Welsch. There are 10 days open for you to bring a warm and nutritious meal to the kids. Prepare a meal for 30 kids and deliver at the Hogar at 12:30 in the afternoon. The kids love hamburgers, french fries, chicken, pork chops, lasagna, soup and sandwiches, farm cheese, tortillas, salsa, cookies, ice cream, cake and the list goes on. It's fun and easy. Prepare as a group, family, or I can help organize a group. lwelsch [- at -] cbriveras.com

Captured! - The following was a post from the LaPaz Gringos and concerns issues there with break-ins and thefts. There is good advice there:

Neighbors, I am pleased to to let you know that as of this evening, at least one of the El Centenario burglars is in custody. I was called by the Municpal Police to identify property that they believed to be taken from the house burglarized last week on 11/22 and 11/23. They had about half the owner's missing property and believed they would be able to locate more. The items are expected to be returned on Friday of this week.

These events serve to again emphasize the importance of filing a full police report. None of this would have been possible without spending the time and effort necessary to file the "denuncia de crimen" at the justice center located on Colosio and Garzas. Only 4 days elapsed from the time of the report to the time of the arrest. This is a pretty impressive result generated by the officers and investigators that responded to this incident and it certainly rivals anything that we could expect back north. But without providing the required information, it would have been just one more unsolved crime. If we do our part, law enforcement has shown that they fully capable of doing theirs. Score one for the good guys! - Tom Carroll

Another thank you from the organizers of The Noche Mexicana, held at Hotel Casa Tota on Saturday evening. The event was a great success. The money raised by your donations will put to good use to help women in our area afflicted with cancer pay for treatment. Thank You.

Those are just some suggestions, what ever you can share will be gladly received.

The Weekender, the areas most complete guide to good times on Baja's South Pacific, is also organizing a toy drive for children living in the ranches. A small wrapped toy, marked Niño, Nina or Bebe, can be dropped off here at La Canada. Also bags of wrapped candies, and oranges would be great to fill the pinatas for the children's Christmas party.
