Thanks so much to Rich and the Boogie in Belize group for their incredibly generous donation to the San Pedro Public Library. They gave us a check for 3100 dollars and an enormous amount of supplies that will keep our after school and summer programs going for a long time. We will use part of the 3100 to fund a stipend for a person to resume our computer classes. It is almost impossible to describe how important that 3100 is to us as well as the supplies. Although the National Library service funds a position and 1/2, everything else comes from fundraising. Library cards cost 3 dollars for 3 years but we still need to help some kids. We service students from all the schools as well as those kids who do not go to school but want to read. And upstairs we have tons of adult books for loan. Thanks so much and please drop by anytime and look around or check out a book.

And to top it off, they personally came to deliver the money and the supplies. The Boogie in Belize skydivers are a totally class act. Now..... they are insane for jumping out of airplanes. I do not even like being on a ladder.
I will add that anyone here who would like to volunteer some time, we need computer teachers, art teachers, literacy tutors, and people willing to do anything else needed. Join the library committee or just help out when you can.
Right now, we especially need someone willing to spend the day painting the new stairwell. It closes to library so the adult branch can be open full time.
Thanks to all of you for your support.

We (as gringo expats with nothing else to do) expect a full accounting of the $3,100 BZ or USD (whatever it is). We will not rest until we see where every cent has gone in print. Published in three newspapers.
Just kidding
payback can and will be a bitch
