Thanks to the unfailing dedication of the 2008 Calendar Girls, the San Pedro Roman Catholic School (SPRCS) will boast a new library and media center for the students. Construction has already been initiated on the library which is a sole donation from the 2008 Isla Bonita Calendar Girls. Men were on site constructing the 20 feet by 20 feet plywood structure.
Located on the school grounds, the library is beneficial for the students as it makes it convenient for the children and their educational needs. Proceeds were raised for the project with the Calendar Girls making personal appearances, raffle sales and of course, their world famous calendar, based on the original calendar from across the pond. In a brief interview with Acting Principal Patricia Lopez, the donation could not have come at a better time and will be a fantastic and much needed addition to the school.
The Isla Bonita Calendar Club was started in 2005 to help with the educational needs of the children here on the island. The first calendar was published in 2006. The funds from those calendar sales were used to build two new classrooms at the SPRCS.
The Isla Bonita Calendar Girls would like to thank Varelaís Lumber, Harmouch Center, Martinez Architects and Mossiah Construction for their donations and discounts. Also much appreciation to Mayor Elsa Paz and the San Pedro Town Council, including the building and engineering departments, for their help in making this project a reality. The community should also give themselves a hand for all their support to the Isla Bonita Calendar Girls because they make it all possible.San Pedro Sun
