Flamingo/Potrero News

October 8, 2010

Our condolences to Flamingo resident Trudy Estler and family from the U.S. city of Atlanta for the recent passing of Trudy’s husband, Roger. He was well-known to many here at the beach as one who loved to boat and fish. Trudy and Roger lived in Flamingo for many years, but returned to Atlanta due to Roger’s declining health. The funeral and memorial services were held in Atlanta.

The Leatherbacks will be performing live at Marie’s Restaurant tonight at 8 p.m. Dinner specials will include lasagna, spinach ravioli and chicken shish kebab for ₡3,000 ($6); drink specials of Imperial beer and screwdrivers will cost ₡1,000 ($2). There will be no cover charge.
