Volunteer Vacation

Heather and Cathy two of the Direct Abundance girls are back and following the ever popular trend of voluntourism by taking a fabulous tropical vacation and volunteering while here. According to a poll conducted by Condé Nast Traveler and MS-NBC – only fourteen percent of Americans have taken a volunteer holiday, but fifty-five percent say they would like to.

After running a few errands in town – picked them up at Maya Island Air yesterday morning – they caught the 11:40 from Belize City to Ambergris Caye. Both Heather and Cathy said they were glad to be home and both missed the island a lot since their last trip. If I had $1 for every time someone returning here has said that I would take you all out to dinner.

After checking into their room at Exotic Caye Beach Resort –  Cathy and Heather got to work right away as Kelly invited them back to the EC office a meeting to learn more about what they are working on while here [water water garden project for San Mateo] and see how Exotic Caye could get involved.

Please note that Thursday and Friday Aquafit classes will be held at Banana Beach Resort same time 10am – 11am if you would like to attend class at Banana Beach please call Maureen count yourself in so she can make sure to have enough equipment for everyone [622-3314].

Reminder CG Esthetic sale still going till the end of September and to let you know Carole will be away from Sept 27th  till Oct 31st – don’t forget to book yourself in for a haircut before she goes.
