Due to the success of the monthly collection of recycling, the schedule has been changed to biweekly. Pickups now occur every other Wednesday (excepting holidays). Items are picked up at the basketball court, in front of the Central School of Atenas. Cleaned and separated glass, aluminum, metal, paper, cartons and plastic are accepted.
Haedel’s German Restaurant may be long gone, but Kirsten and Siegfried still make their popular handmade German sausages, pates and smoked trout daily at Melani’s Balcon de Café downtown, as well as the recently renovated and enlarged Coopeatenas Supermarket on the old highway.
Universidad Técnica Nacional (UTN) is asking for volunteers to serve as conversational partners for students majoring in English as a second language. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 2435-5000 ext. 1248.
The Atenas Bridge Club now meets at the newly renovated Don Yayo’s Restaurant each Wednesday from 1-4 p.m. Visitors welcome, no partner required.
