Good Time Had By All!

We want to thank Cliff and Suzy White for their help in making our breakfast fundraiser a success. Their incredible menu and organized wait staff made the event flow seamlessly and I think everyone had a great time. We also want to thank the most important part of the event, everyone who came and enjoyed themselves and brought their friends and had a good time. We are planning on having an event like this once a month this year at different locations and different times of the week to make it doable for everyone interested. We want to thank Casey and Sandy for their efforts in selling tickets, Penny & Vanice for helping at the entry table and Barbara for doing both. It’s the support from everyone that makes this a success. We raised enough money to cover some bills, pay our indispensible house Tia, Lupita, buy some shoes from the shoe donation box and stock up on some food. It’s all good.

With the help from our Ejido representative Lic. Mariza Villar, our State Diputado Nancy Sanchez and our friend Rafael Navarro, we have obtained a subsidy from the state of Baja to pay our water bill through the end of the year. For us this is a big deal apart from the $50 - $60 dollars a month, this is the first budgetary help we have received from the Mexican government and we appreciate it. We also want to thank everyone who has donated to us this month to help with our electricity bill. As you know, this time of year this becomes our biggest expense and it’s one of those things that are hard to gauge. It is hard to go into the home and see the girls and Lupita melting because they care and are trying to save electricity. These last few weeks it is impossible to not have the A/C on in at least the living room for the day.
