April 2018 Dispensa

Well here is another dispensa day in Chicxulub.  There was a terrific storm during the night and it is cloudy and dark to begin the day. A THANK YOU to all of you who donated your leftover food this season.  For the past few dispensas the families have received an “extra” something with their dispensas. We gathered at Capitan Flores, the restaurant in Chicxulub who has opened their doors to us every month on the 15th.

San Joachim Nursing Home

San Joachim Nursing Home

Another successfu and fun-filled season as come to an end. San Joachim looks very good thanks to the mens’ group and the residents are laughing and enjoying the visits from the exercise volunteers. From Duncan and the mens’ group. We continue to get the bed frames sanded and painted so that all the beds  in the main rooms are done. Our last official Tuesday this year will be March 20. That day, we will lock the tools and materials in one of the bodegas for safekeeping until next winter. We are hoping the ten new dressers for the women’s dorm will arrive this week. The new women’s bathroom has some sinks and fixtures installed, and much of the tile work has been done. The madre is making a list of projects for next year, and we should have a new to-do list soon.

What a fun time we had this season.  The kids learned some new skills, had fun, received hats and uniforms and the volunteers learned some baseball phrases. There were more fans making noise and the team clown made a few appearances. Kids received uniform pants, t-shirts and jerseys along with baseball caps.  When they played in their blue shirts they looked like mini Blue Jays! THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CAME TO PLAY  ...
