Primary schools held Revolutionary Day parades in nearby streets

En calles aledañas a sus instalaciones

Lanrry PARRA

ISLA MUJERES, 24 de noviembre.-
Four days after Revolutionary Day on Nov. 20th, most of the primary schools have had parades separately in the streets near their respective schools. The longest parade was by the primary school "Andres Quintana Roo" who walked from their campus to Rueda Medina avenue near the monument to the Fishermen down to the Magana ferry pier, and then returned to their school, which is located at the northern end of Juarez Avenue. They were in costumes alluding to the date including those of the Adelitas and other characters of the Mexican Revolution, as well as in sportswear.
    Regarding mid-island primary schools; "Cesar Mendoza Santana", of colonia Salinas, and "Julio Espinosa Sauri", of colonia la Gloria, each had parade activities alluding to the start of the Revolución Mexicana, as did the young kindergarten students of the private school "Jean Piaget".
    The teachers explained that these activities were carried to justify the spending by the parents to purchase the special clothing for their children, which could not be avoided because the announcement of the suspension of the parade on November 20th occurred only a few hours in advance of the scheduled start time. 
        After each school had parades near their facility, the students returned to regular educational activities until the scheduled end of the school day.


Mundaca palapa: 70% finished

The former palapa at the Mundaca Hacienda had considerable structural damage throughout, and was a risk for workers and visitors, and therefore was removed and is being replaced. Work on the new structure, which is located at the entrance to the historic Hacienda, is 70% complete. It is expected to be completed in time to welcome tourists visiting during the December holidays.

Para garantizar servicio de odontología en hospital Integral

Lanrry PARRA

ISLA MUJERES, 24 de noviembre.-

The Hospital director, David Valenzo Loaeza, anticipates that new equipment will be installed in the Dentistry offices of the General Hospital in upcoming days, with support form Governor Roberto Borge Angulo. This area was consumed by fire following a short circuit from the overheating of the machine that sterilizes surgical equipment.

It has also been supported by a mobile medical unit which has two general consultation rooms and a dental office.

The interior was renovated, and patients began arriving, and surgeries were rescheduled after waiting for a week for the work to be completed.

Sally Margolis  on FB....
Hi everyone, I just posted a campaign for an Isla Animals November Spay/Neuter & Education clinic.

There will be an education station at this clinic and Isla Animals is also set to go to the schools. Please continue to support an organization that has made great strides with 15 years of steady service to the island. And please, please help us share this campaign! Thank you!
