What’s New in Peñasco 2003

By Tom & Jackie Young

 

    It’s hard to believe that we’re half way through spring break and it’s almost time to head back up to high country. We’ve had a great winter with the best weather we can recall ever having here in Rocky Point. We’ve enjoyed many good meals at many places and tried to report on the ones that we feel deserve a return visit: sadly we’ve also eaten at some real bummers.

    Thanks to all the people that made Playa Elegante RV Parks’ Valentine’s Day parade the great success it was. Let’s try to do it even bigger again next year.

    Thanks to all the troopers that worked so hard to put on the great fund raising breakfast on the beach at Playa Elegante. Over $1,100.00 USD was raised to help Amor Children’s Home. Also, while we’re on the subject of Amor Children’s Home, there are now a dozen children at the home and still growing. They have moved to a new facility due to the high costs of trying to operate on a budget that is mainly donated. We spent a couple of days helping to make the new facility ready and, feel again, that we should make another appeal for support. Many good people support Amor Children’s Home as well as Esperanza para los Niños Children’s Home but there are always needs that are not so visible. Children’s clothing, food and monies are always appreciated; however, other needs include cleaning supplies, laundry supplies, bar soap, hygienic needs, furniture, bedding, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. The list is endless. And, yes, there is one more thing that is needed – You – yes, you – a simple visit. A few moments of your time, a bag of candy, a couple of hours work. Rent a kid – take a few out for a hot dog or some ice cream or get your group together and put on a cookout at the orphanage. It’s real easy to find. Amor Children’s Home is located one block east of the old Margaritavilla Restaurant. Turn east at the intersection of Campeche and Manuel Quintana Roo, go one block and turn right, the children’s home is on the left. Look for the signs.

    We keep checking on the construction progress of the new Ley’s supermarket. Looks like it’s coming right along and we’re sure it will open by the time we return this coming fall. Even though we shop at the little Mercados and the vegetable truck on the side of the street, it will be nice to have a full-up supermarket to shop at. You won’t need to run to Ajo quite as often.
