Happy August Ladies,

The August Mujeres Amigas luncheon will be held on Wednesday, August 6th at Oasis. The hostess for the luncheon will be Linda Breun as Candy is again off on a trip. There won’t be a speaker this month but Linda will lead the discussion items below or anything else you would like to talk about. The choice for the luncheon is Tropical Chicken sandwich-grilled chicken breast, caramelized onions, melted cheese on house made bread….French fries OR Beef Burrito-sautéed steak, onions and peppers with rice and beans in a giant flour tortilla.

Ladies Please If you plan on attending the luncheon, please respond by 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 5th to with your choice for lunch. A thank you to all who responded last month. We will not turn anyone away. A few more or less is ok but let’s not take advantage of Oasis’ kindness in letting Mujeres Amigas hold our luncheons at their restaurant.


It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that Jeanne Folan (Mrs. Nick Nelson) passed away July 10th surrounded by family. Jeanne was a long time resident of Roca del Mar in Las Brisas. Our condolences go out to Nick and Mary Claire (Jeanne’s sister) and the rest of the family.


At the luncheon, Linda will lead two discussions of proposed events –

1. Do those in attendance want a late summer party in September or an early fall party in October?

2. Would those in attendance enjoy holding the September luncheon at the Natura Camp hosted by Elizabeth Torres?

Congratulations!! to Diego and Kathy on the completion of the new Oasis palapa. I have been told it is beautiful. Rosamalia’s new Gelato shop is also ready for you to enjoy your favorite flavor or two.

Happy 5th Birthday to the Friends of Mexican Animal Welfare. Since their inception in 2009, the Friends of Mexican Animal Welfare have raised money for a permanent clinic to be shared by three sites.
