There is a new group starting on our island, with the purpose being to foster new friendships and to help new folks moving to the island to feel welcome and settle in quicker. Vacationers are of course welcome to join us when in town.
It has always seemed to me that the island revolves around the consumption of alcohol and if that floats your boat you have many venues, but it is my desire to get people together for the joy of knowing someone new and the company of old friends. I thought we would plan a dinner once a week and maybe lunch too – trying out different restaurants. Perhaps take some excursions if there is interest. A pot luck (pitch in) dinner maybe once a month would be nice too. I expect this will be like most everything else in San Pedro – a laid back organization, loosely run.
First gathering to be around November 15th. Hope you join us. Pamela Morrill
p.s. There are similar "Social Clubs" where ever there are large numbers of ex-pats around the world. And yes several years ago there was a San Pedro Social Club that folded - I think run by folks who were not on island who raised money for charities?
Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
