Torch run 2008
Chatting on the coconut phone with shuffles this morning – we are debating how cold the pool will be and if we are lazy to go or not.
Annual Torch Run/Aids walk on Sunday, please help spread the word if you know anyone who would be interested in participating.
The aim of the torch run is to strengthen the awareness of HIV/Aids and gender based violence in Belizean homes. The torch will pass through all the districts and on Sunday will arrive on the island. Everyone will gather at the Central Park at 10:30am on Sunday, November 30th. There be snacks and refreshments at the end of the run and an all day fair to raise funds for the Aids Commission.
Calendar Girls update…
Construction has started on a library/media center for the San Pedro Roman Catholic Elementary School donated by the 2008 Isla Bonita Calendar Girls. The new library/media building is located on the school grounds to make it convenient for the children with their educational needs. Funds were raised for the project with the Calendar Girls personal appearances, raffle sales and of course, their world famous calendar, based on the original calendar from across the pond.
The Isla Bonita Calendar Girls would like to thank Varela Lumber, Harmouch Center, Martinez Architects and Mossiah Construction for their donations and discounts. Also much appreciation to Mayor Elsa Paz and the town board including the building and engineering departments for their help in making this project a reality. The community should also give themselves a hand for all their support to the Isla Bonita Calendar Girls because they make it all possible.
The Isla Bonita Calendar Club was started in 2005 to help with the educational needs of the children here on the island. The first calendar was published in 2006. The funds from that calendar sales were used to build two new classrooms the San Pedro Roman Catholic Elementary School. Way to go girls!!!
