Flamingo/Potrero News

June 2, 2011

The Flamingo Association is having a garage sale on June 18, during the general assembly meeting set to start at 9 a.m. After spring-cleaning, bring your unwanted items anytime before June 18 to the Flamingo Beach Hotel. The sale will benefit our community and make your old stuff someone else’s treasure. Remember that the hotel accepts recycling, so while there you can drop off your cans, glass, plastics and kitchen oils, all separated, at the guard gate.

Congratulations to Playa Flamingo for receiving another Ecological Blue Flag award! The flag-raising ceremony took place May 18 at the corner flagpole by the Flamingo Beach Hotel. Check out photos on the Flamingo Association’s Facebook page.

During the association’s May meeting, Brandy Renalde, a 10th-grader at La Paz Community School, presented her idea for a school project that would benefit local communities. She wants to put up “No Quads” signs at the entrances to three area beaches: Playa Potrero, Playa Brasilito and Playa Conchal. She had heard about the diminishing turtle population and decided to take the initiative and make a difference. She believes that four-wheelers and other vehicles driving on the beaches are among the main hazards to the turtle population. She also believes that vehicles cause pollution that is affecting the balance of area marine life. Brandy is asking businesses to consider supporting her project with a $60 purchase of a 90-by-60-centimeter metal sign secured on a single post. For more information on how you can help, contact Brandy at desire.and.bliss@gmail.com.

Dr. Lisa Stowell, a licensed chiropractor from Southern California, recently moved to Costa Rica and is now practicing in Brasilito, in the complex with the Cabo Vela sign, across the street from the old gas station near Hitching Post Plaza. A graduate of the Cleveland Chiropractic College in Los Angeles, California, Lisa specializes in sacro-occipital technique. She had her chiropractic table shipped from the U.S. in order to provide proper treatment. Her hours are Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. For an appointment, call 8718-9019.
