In describing themselves, the Ladies of the Lake say: “We are women of varying backgrounds and nationalities in the Lake Arenal Community who meet regularly to support one another, and who work together to have a positive impact in the extended community.”
On Sunday, Dec. 9, the Ladies of the Lake will hold their 3rd Annual Art Show and Christmas Bazaar Fundraiser. They are asking you to help them help others. All proceeds go toward local community outreach programs including supporting families in crisis, spay and neutering dogs and cats, feeding street animals etc.
Donations of the following items are needed: new or used clothing, shoes, books and magazines, CDs and DVDs, household items, knick knacks, kitchen utensils, furniture, bedding, appliances/electronics (if not in working order, please let us know), in other words, anything saleable!
Drop off locations for donations: for the Tilaran/Tronadora area, Rene Aoki of Re/Max Rico Realty is accepting donations at the office on Tronadora Road, 200 meters from the turn-off of the Lake Road (follow the signs). For the Nuevo Arenal area, Marisol at the Iguana Tropical Bar and Grill (formerly Rumours) will take your donations and hold them. The Iguana is located next to Banco de Costa Rica across from the service station.
If you have items to donate that you would like picked up from your home, call Ruth Fountaine at 8371-3015 or email email@example.com. Spaces are available for artists/artisans, specialty take-away foods, services and local activities. You may also hold your own garage sale. Space rental is $10 per table.
All proceeds from space rentals go to support local community outreach by Ladies of the Lake. The Bazaar will be located indoors at the huge salon area of Plaza del Café on the Lake Road opposite the turnoff to Sabalito/Tierras Morenas starting at 10 a.m. Thanks to Ruth Fountaine for her assistance with this report.
