This is part of a list sent to some of the Snowbird Community.  I thought it would be a good idea to share with you. Garbage Cleanup – For the first month in office, Zacarias Curi and his councillors (regidores) donated their salary for the purposes of cleaning up the garbage and paying down the previous administrations CFE bill. There was a three day blitz of the town by the basureros to pick up tons of garbage. As an incentive Zacarias Curi passed legislation imposing fines and/or jail time for persons disposing of garbage in the streets and along the beaches. Jail time was handed out to several persons. New signage was posted at the entrance to the town proclaiming the fines…alerting anyone who came to Progreso.. Progreso Face Lift – Repainting of the City Hall was carried out by friends of Zacarias Curi before his installation as Mayor. It had not been painted in many years and is now blue and white. Just recently there is a new Sound and Light Show Saturday nights in the square. In the coming weeks many of the buildings in the main square are undergoing some restoration and will be repainted in new pastel colors (there are limited choices, similar to what are prescribed in Merida). Initial efforts are indicated for Calles 78 and 80 from the square to the Malecon. Sundays in Progreso – a new BiciRuta along the Malecon with bike rentals. Traffic free every Sunday morning. NEW Restaurants -depending on when you left, there are several new restaurants. Elio del Mare finally opened his new place in August for...
Muelle Market

Muelle Market

Hi Everyone The Muelle Market will be Starting Early this Season…Our opening date is  December 6th /2018 Then as Always it will be the 1st and 3rd Thursday of December to March. We thought it would be interesting to tell you all how the Muelle Market started. Hope you all enjoy the read and See You at the Market. The Story of How the Muelle Market Started The idea came after chatting with my friend Sharon, who has lived in Chicxulub for years and assists with many humanitarian programs in the village especially the Chicxulub Food Bank. We talked about a way to help the local artisans who handcrafted item as the fishing did not sustain the families all year. So, being a creative thinker and an artist it didn’t take long to come up with the idea of doing a market. Now it was time to start looking around for a local venue for the market. I had only been in Chicxulub for about 7 months at the time and spoke very little Spanish so I incorporated the help of Sharon and her friend Carmita. After seeing what was available, I told Sharon that I had seen a beautiful restaurant in Chicxulub Centro and thought it would be a perfect space to use for a small market. It was then that Sharon introduced me and the market idea to Charlie the owner of Bamboo Beach Restaurante which, was also the home of the Chicxulub food bank. I realized then, that I also wanted the market to somehow help raise money for the food bank. The artisans and the...

Summer Programming

Carmita and her team did a great job this summer.  There was work done on family trees and values and drawings! There was an exciting beach clean-up where the moms joined their kids to clean the beach.  The comisaria also was present to pick up the various bags. The Food Bank received a few more volunteers to help out Carmita. The kids and volunteers kept busy with discovering  family connections, learning more about Chicxulub and using talent for drawing. End of season party As they did last season, Capitan Flores honoured the volunteers with a fiesta at the restaurant.  As you can see everyone enjoyed themselves. Thanks to all of you for your dedication and enthusiasm for the kids and Food...
