  16. 10:30 in the BCP Theater Tuesday, May 29 – Boquete Health and Hospice presents “Being Prepared Part II ”Living Will and Last Will”. Do you need an attorney to develop your living will? Is your last will from your homeland valid in Panama? Juan Contreras, local attorney, will present on the Panamanian living will and last will. Come hear from an attorney what you need to do. Tuesday, June 5 -- As a celiac diagnosed over 30 years ago and traveling the globe for business, Boquete resident Sharna Kahn quickly had to master how to minimize the risk of eating out at most any restaurant and obtain a gluten free and allergy free meal long before the food industry knew what gluten was. Her institutional food handling knowledge was acquired as a photojournalist and blogger for the emerging gluten free industry in the U.S. via the online Examiner (when the wave started over 15 years ago), a current TripAdvisor gluten free restaurant reviewer (50k plus readers), and consumer reporter for celiac medical research. She also completed a certified course for institutional food handling of allergenic foods. Learn how to enjoy eating out with confidence that your meal meets your dietary needs with a factual and fun filled presentation. Tuesday, June 12 – Carla Black, Panama’s expert on heliconias, water lilies, and other native plants. Carla's 10th Annual Heliconia Plant Sale is held the end of June this year, and she will talk about how to care for the plants she sells and the ones you already have in your yard, without chemicals. In addition to growing what might be the largest collection of heliconia species in the world, Carla enjoys water gardening. See how easy it can be to have your own water lilies blooming just out the window. Come prepared with your gardening questions and puzzles, and we'll wrap up with a discussion of what's going on in your garden. Tuesday, June 19 – Glenn Davis, author, lecturer, college professor, historian, and Boquete resident. He is the author of 4 books available on Amazon.com, three other books published in Japanese by leading Japanese publishers and hundreds of articles on Japan and Japan-American relations. One book is titled "How We Lived in Wellborn before Television" about the small town in Texas where he grew up in the 1950’s. He took note that Wellborn residents were very close-knit and friendly. People visited each other, sat out on their front porches and didn't lock their doors. But that was before TV arrived and changed everything about the small village. People did not visit as much and socialization virtually stopped inside homes as everyone was glued to their new boob tubes. Glenn will present a thoughtful comparison of today's cell phone and computer technology with the TV invasion of the past. Are cell phones the new TV? You can now see people sitting at home with their cell phones glued to their hands sending messages to each other in the same room, even on the same sofa. Real communities are being replaced by virtual ones. Where is all this tapping and beeping leading societies? Depressing or enlightening, the audience can choose. Tuesday, June 26 – DAC Transport of Panama City. This international company has been in business for more than 23 years and would like to introduce their services to the Boquete community. They can arrange shipping and moving services by air, land, and sea. They handle commercial as well as personal shipments. Whether you are a business or want to move household goods, they can provide full transportation service. They will be joined in the presentation by Boquete resident, Saroya Kendrick, who had a career in international cargo transportation in the US before moving to Panama. FREE ADMISSION Tuesday, July 3 – Tuesday, July 24 – Pat Chan of Fundacion Spay Panama will speak. Pat recently was voted Panama’s #1 hero in a nationwide contest sponsored by TVN network. Spay Panama has sterilized over 135,000 dogs and cats since its founding. Spay Panama has also been the model for the Boquete and Volcan spay clinics. Tuesday, July 31 –Milagros Sanchez Pinzón, executive director of Culturama International in David, is the premiere historian for Chiriqui Province and Boquete in particular. She authored the book Boquete, Rasgos de su Historia in 2001 and Boquete: Valley of the eternal rainbow in 2006 -- research and photos illustrating the rich history of Boquete and its founding families. Luz Graciela Joly Adames, Tenured Professor of Anthology, Department of History, Faculty of Humanities, Autonomous University of Chiriqui, will translate. Milagros will bring photos of the early history of Boquete. The speakers will be introduced by Price Peterson, long time Boquete resident and former U.S. Warden for Boquete. To suggest a speaker or topic for these meetings please email BCP Tuesday Meeting To become a vendor at the Tuesday market, Facility Manager
  17. And please note that fondas/tipicos (restaurants) with 5 or fewer tables are not obligated to give the discount. These are usually small family operations that struggle to make a living, so every penny is important to them!
