July 2, 2010

Longtime beach community friend Cathie Carl, formerly of Cathie’s Cakes, came to Costa Rica from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to attend the Country Day School 2010 graduation in support of her friends’ daughter, Sophia Colombari, who was class valedictorian. Cathie and her best friend, Suzie, came together, as Cathie’s husband, Bill, had recently undergone heart surgery and could not join her. They had a great time visiting and meeting old friends all over the beach communities. Their trip was short but powerfully packed.

The Happy Snapper and King Mortgage present the third annual July 4 Softball Bash at the Happy Snapper field in Brasilito.

Teams are being set up now, so help represent your town. Grilled food and drinks will be available along with horseshoes, followed by an evening of live music and a 25 percent discount off dinners. Bring your beach chairs and umbrellas to enjoy the day rain or shine. First pitch is at 1 p.m. For information, contact Mike or Craig at the Happy Snapper at 2654-4413, or King Mortgage at 8707-9939 or info@kingcr.com.

With the upcoming departure of Pastor Brett Clifford from BeachCommunityChurch, we want to thank him and his wife, Joanne, for all their dedication, hard work and support in the community during their four-year stay in Costa Rica. Their entire family, including Nate and Nicole, added much energy and joy to the congregation. Lyle Watson of Tamarindo, who has been with the church as associate pastor, was voted in as the new, permanent pastor starting July 16. We congratulate and welcome Lyle and his wife, Stacy, and children, Olivia and Wolfie, and will sincerely miss Brett, Joanne, Nate and Nicole.
