Check out all the great stuff in this drawing to raise funds for Isla's Diabetes Clinic! For more than a dozen years, this nonprofit organization has provided free glucometers, supplies, and education to diabetic islanders and providers serving them. A BIG Thank-You to all the supportive businesses! You're encouraged to patronize these generous folks who are giving back to their community!!
You're invited to come & watch some of Isla's youngest athletes practice at the Ariel 'el Picho' Magana children's baseball field, Monday thru Friday 4:30-7p.
Bring at least a kilo of dry dog food to participate in today's Pet Costume Contest on the Town Square at 5p. Costumes should have a Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead theme and prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places. Judging will be based on Creativity, Charisma-appeal of the animal (lit-sympathy), and Performance-presentation (lit-unfolding).
Catrina isn't just an internationally-known logo for Day of the Dead, she helped stir up a Revolution and "hung out" with Frida & Diego.
