Playing ballExercisingGroup from Tennessee The residents had a fun morning on Jan. 22nd.  Dayday and her group from Tennessee came for an hour of exercising Everyone enjoyed their time here. The mens’group has been busy with their list of activities from Hermana Aurelia. She likes the softer yellow color that was completed on the two lower walls. She is pleased with the newer, brighter look of the courtyard. Ixmael has been busy this week repairing the cement work on the upper floors. He has done a great job of chipping out the loose concrete and replacing it with fresh smooth filler. So this Tuesday our main job will be to scrape and seal the 3 upper levels. The two door repairs will continue, the one in the tv room, and the other in the outside bodega. There is a mattress stand to be built in the bodega, and if we have lots of manpower, there is plenty of yard cleanup to complete. Here is the initial colour. WayneJames Last week we scraped and sealed the upper three levels of the courtyard, and cleaned up in the backyard area. This week we’ll be painting those upper three walls of the courtyard area. More work on repairing doors and outdoor cleaning will continue depending on manpower. Cheers, See you at 9 am. Last week we finished painting the upper level of the west courtyard, the top three feet of the east courtyard wall, the entranceway, and the north end wall. Serge stained the main frame and salvaged trim for the screen door he is building. Some yard cleaning was completed. Ixmael...

This month you have all been very generous! The Chicxulub Food Bank has received funds from a Candelaria Celebration, a garage sale at Neek Kaan, a book launch, a Superbowl party in Uyamatum, as well as bags of beans and rice for the Food Bank families. For this I thank you! As it is known, the Day of Candelaria is celebrated on February 2, the day when Baby Jesus was presented at the temple according to the Jewish tradition. This act marks the end of the Christmas period. In this activity we do the traditional raising of Baby Jesus and we’ll celebrate with tamales and atole, food that since pre-Hispanic times was basic in every celebration. It marks the mid-way point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox, which aligns with the pagan holiday of Imbolc. Since ancient times, this date was thought to be a marker or predictor of the weather to come, which is why it is also celebrated as Groundhog Day in the United States. A very successful garage sale at Neek Kaan was held on Feb. 14th. More photos next month. A Superbowl Party by the Uyamatun group raised funds for the Food Bank. Feb. 19th Konrad Brinck had his 2nd book signing “Travelations” at David’s restaurant. The Food Bank received a % from each book sold. The various events that the Food Bank is involved with has received many kgms of beans and rice and extras for our families. I THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST AND...
