August “a gusto”. Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Tekila-Bar August "a gusto".  Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Sponsored this week by Tekila Bar *coolest summer AC in the Old Port

Yep, August. It’s here. For the humidity loving, keep my hair curly and moist skin sensation lovers, this is your month. Admittedly, the blanket of summer humidity has not spread as thick as in years past – or, we’ve just gotten used to it.  Whatever the case, IT’S STILL SUMMER so that means beach time, boat cruises, and back to school drives!  Let’s run down the weekend.

School Supply Drives

  • AIM Peñasco, A.C. – This local organization will be supporting more than 100 students this next school year . For more information, contact Kathleen Duncan and/or check out their Amazon Wish List     Link to Amazon Acct:
  • ECO-Recycling Club – got any 2nd hand school supplies that are still in good condition (backpacks, notebooks with clean pages, pens, pencils, crayons, glue sticks, etc.)? They can still be put into perfect use in putting together school packets for local kiddos.  Drop off spot: Municipal Office on Ecology and Sustainable Development (entrance in back of City Hall) or w/Sami at the offices of  638 380 8849
  • Adopt a Classroom. Not even heart surgery could keep Barb O. down in her efforts to supply local schools with material.  For more information on the Adopt-a-Classroom year round effort, please contact Barb (or Mark) O.  638 114 2406
