3 Kings Day Membership Drive a Success!
By Jan Davis
Thanks to you, 155 local children now have access to the Biblioteca. This year, for the first time, the Biblioteca board of directors created a campaign to sell “Feliz Día de Reyes” cards for 120 pesos each. When gifted to a child on 3 Kings Day, that young boy or girl was given a one year’s membership to the Biblioteca. We sold 155 cards¾a great start!
For those with memberships, the Biblioteca provides an array free classes. On any given day last year, between 30 and 40 children attended classes in English, 20-25 in art, 15 in piano, 35 in guitar classes. 20-40 children could be found in the Sala Infantil. Others play chess, participate in the science club or learn arts and crafts. Now, 15e more children will have the opportunity to attend these free classes and take home four books for 15 days.
The Board wishes to thank the following local businesses for supporting the 3 Kinds Day membership drive: Teresa of San Miguel Post, Susan of La Conexion, Lou of VIP Club San Miguel and Solutions.
