Flamingo/Potrero News

September 24, 2010

It is heartening to see that even in tough economic times people are still giving generously of their time and money to help their fellow guanacastecos.

As mentioned last week, the Kid’s Club was inaugurated in Playa Potrero, giving local kids an attractive and stimulating place to go after school and participate in fun educational projects. And the Four Seasons at Peninsula Papagayo recently invited a group of children with the nonprofit CEPIA to a special activity at which the resort presented a donation of much needed and appreciated books, bookshelves and food packages for local schools.

La Paz School, now in its fourth year, will join forces with local restaurants to raise money for its scholarship fund. September’s dinner with music took place at Angelina’s in Flamingo and was a huge success.
