Flamingo/Potrero News

December 9, 2010

The Pet Care Program, run by Flamingo residents Dawn and Sid Scott, continues to help unwanted, unvaccinated, injured and sick dogs and cats. The program conducts spay-neuter clinics throughout Guanacaste and regularly donates dog food or sells it below cost. Everyone involved in the program is a volunteer, so all donations go directly to help animals in need, not to salaries. To help out, e-mail sidscott4775@gmail.com. Donations may be made through PayPal.

Beach Community Church is sponsoring a mission to help the poor in Manchester, a barrio outside of Managua, Nicaragua. The group is working at two shelters that are temporarily housing some 1,000 people displaced as a result of the hurricane season that has wreaked havoc in the region. The mission provided at least one week’s worth of food for each family, formula for 42 babies and school supplies for 130 children. The group also visited the many families living in the nearby dump area and contributed to the feeding program there. Clothing and shoes also were distributed to the needy. Many thanks to all those who helped with donations of money, clothes, shoes and extras for this important work.

The Blues Devils, a terrific blues and rock band from San José, is set to play at Marie’s Restaurant Dec. 12. Great dinner and drink specials will be on offer.
