Marie’s Restaurant in Flamingo will host a book signing, art show and wine tasting event today from 5-8 p.m. Craig Ledbetter will be signing copies of his book, Susan Adams and other well-known artists will display their newest original artwork or jewelry, and Jorge Granados will introduce his new line of wines. Dinner and drink specials will be offered, and a raffle will benefit a local charity. 

Marie’s also will offer a traditional U.S. Thanksgiving dinner with turkey and all the trimmings Nov. 24 from 2 p.m. onward. Dinner, including salad, dessert and coffee, will cost $25 for adults and $15 for kids 12 and under.

Beach Community Church is hosting a free Thanksgiving celebration Nov. 24 from noon-3 p.m., with fun for the kids, a great meal and good fellowship. For more information, contact Babe at 2654-4902 or tbabehopkins@yahoo.com

The Black and White Party at The Oasis Restaurant in Brasilito raised $3,000 to support Árbol de Ángel, a charity that provides food, clothes, school uniforms, basic household necessities and toys for underprivileged children and their families in Guanacaste, and wants to do something special for the holidays. For more information, see www.angeltreecostarica.com and www.acostaricanchristmas.blogspot.com.

Recently, before the really bad rains came and caused tons of new potholes on the streets in Surfside, the roads were graded by local resident Dave Nelson. Thank you, Dave, for your efforts and concerns for our community, and to the many other people who have taken the initiative to grade the roads in the past, paying for or donating the labor and grading machine to get the work done. We all benefit immensely.

Don’t miss Beachnuts Theatre Company and Amigos de la Educación’s production of “Scrooge,” Nov. 24-26 at the Tamarindo Diria amphitheater (see story on Page W8).
