Summer Camp

Summer Camp

Carmita worked with the children in July and August helping them develop their family tree and history of their family. The July workshops had a total of 35 children with some as young as 4 and 5. Our volunteers returned for another summer and we even had a few new ones. Kids were introduced to playing lawn darts, a game donated by one the Food Bank supporters.  They really enjoyed this new experience.     Learning about their families is a great lead-in to the competition in November for anyone in the village to get involved in.  We are hoping for stories, photos and folklore that will help us all know the history of where we live and the prize is a triciclo that has been donated.  And for the folks who might have challenges in doing this type of work, our youth volunteers will assist them.  Does this not sound like a win-win situation?  Stay tuned for further...
September Dispensa

September Dispensa

I am back home following a my summer vacation with my family and friends. And I am ready to get back at it! The summer dispensas went smoothly and of course,the team did a fine job. Summer Team August Dispensa   September Dispensa   This was an interesting dispensa.  We had help from one of the families with 5 children and learned a few things.  Grade 5 students do not know their alphabet and the two with us had trouble alphabetizing the name cards during the activity.  The other grade 5 boy did a good job of checking the names and stamping the cards.  Their baby sister, age 1 captured the hearts of many of the folks attending and did a fine job standing up to her older brothers. And you have heard that “sitting is the smoking of the our generation”?  Well, this girl did whatever she could to sit at every turn….interesting to see. There are 46 families on the roster and 6 applicants to interview for possible...

Cruise Ship Visit

The Chicxulub Food Bank has been welcoming cruisers and accepting their donations since 2007 and there have been many changes and additions throughout the years.  The web site lists both the current school supplies needed and the wish list for extras and we appreciate so much the thoughtfulness from all of you. The McNamara family from Indiana visited us in July.  Don and Jody met them and took them to Chicxulub via local bus.  They toured Chicxulub, enjoyed ice cream and lunch at Rosita’s.  The family donated tons of items for the school kids and our School Psychology program along with a generous financial donation.  Thanks so...

Summer Programming

Carmita has developed another workshop for this summer entitled ” My history and how it helps build the History of Chicxulub.”  The children began learning this concept in the summer of 2015.  They drew some family trees and talked to their parents and grandparents about their history. The intro was looking at the “Heros of Chicxulub.”  Who discovered and settled Chicxulub and how their families were affected. Now they will exam it deeper.  By the end it is the goal for each child to have a clearer understanding of his famiy and how they “fit” into the local village. This is a great lead-in to the competition in November for anyone in the village to get involved in.  We are hoping for stories, photos and folklore that will help us all know the history of where we live. For the folks who might have challenges in doing this type of work, our youth volunteers will assist them. Does this not sound like a win-win situation?  Stay tuned for further...
