  7. 10:30 in the BCP Theater Your $1 admission helps us keep the doors open Tuesday, July 16 - Zapatillos de Dios is sponsored by the church of San Juan Bautista and distributes sneakers to children in need around Boquete. The next distribution will be at Casa Esperanza on Sept. 21. There are 220 children there on a daily basis and the organization currently has just 80 pairs of shoes. Come hear how you can help put shoes on the little feet of Boquete. Bill McAbee and Donna O’Brien will tell you about Las Zapatillas de Dios, God’s sneakers. Donna O’Brien and her husband Ken came to Boquete on vacation 12 1/2 years ago. Ken was already retired and Donna was looking for the right place that would allow her to be able to do. She found it in Boquete. They bought a house while here on vacation and finally were able to leave Washington state for good one year later. When asked if they like Boquete they laughingly reply, “We must! We’re still here!” Donna comments that what has made Boquete special is the amazing people they have met here. Bill McAbee and his wife Anne vacationed in Boquete in 2010 while researching several future retirement destinations in Central America. Their time table to relocate to BQT was accelerated dramatically by an unexpected sale of their ranch residence in Colorado. Now in their 8th year full time, they enjoy equally spending time with Panamanians and Expats. Bill has been teaching English class at the library for 3 years.

This presentation will cover the identified positive effects of meditation as noted in the medical literature, a brief overview of various meditative practices prescribed in modern medicine and a brief, audience participation demonstration. Come find a practical, free process to greater health and happiness. Merl Will-Wallace has a Masters degree in mental health counseling and over twenty years of counseling experience.

  10. This kitty appeared at our doorstep in the Boquete Country Club on Sunday night. He's very friendly and clean and has no fleas. He must belong to someone. If you are missing this little guy, please give me a call. I'm keeping him safe and fed. I know this email won't make it to everyone so if this isn't your cat, please check with your neighbors - someone must be very worried about him. Encontré este gato en el Boquete Country Club domingo por la noche. Si él es su gato, por favor, llama me o escribe me. Si no, por favor habla con sus vecinos sobre este gato. él es alguien mascota. Gracias. Thanks much Nancy Lape 6942-3973. (I'm also on Whatsapp)

  12. Translations? Legal Translations? Yes, you are in the right place Do you have a need for translations from English to Spanish or vice versa? Qualifications and experience are both important for you to receive maximum benefits because qualifications without practical knowledgeable sensitivity are incomplete in their service to you. In Panama for official translations it is mandatory for the translator to have a stamp. I am happy to announce that I have had this stamp for eight years and I am a native Panamanian with working knowledge of the country and its customs and legal system etc. I have been translating legal and personal documents for individuals, legal representatives, Government Agencies, the Police Department, International Organizations, authors, etc. At your service………………….
