The class will start June 25th . It will be held at the Haven Spa Mondays and Thursdays from 11-12 for 10 weeks. The cost is $6.00 per class. The total is $120.00 which I will collect in full the first day of class. The form that will be taught is the Yang style 24 posture form. A link below will show this form. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4VIw41R-PU If you are interested, contact me at abbasingha@aol.com and I will reserve a spot for you.

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.

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.

    Are you missing a pet Tamarin?

    This obviously tame Tamarin has been seen hanging around the Amigos de Animales building for the last 3 days. I don't know why the person giving it water did not catch it and confine it to keep it safe and out of the rain. Hopefully someone will be able to catch it, and the person who lost it will see this.

    Annual Concert Membership

    Dear Friends, the Boquete Library Foundation invites you to participate of the multiple benefits that our Annual Concert Membership program offers. For B/.100.00 you will be able to participate in all of our concerts for 12 months (approximately one concert per month), starting from the moment you acquire your membership. By enrolling in the program you will have the following advantages: savings in the total cost of the tickets, an opportunity to please your senses through high quality music, ensuring your ticket, a transfer benefit (if you can’t come to the event you can pass the membership’s benefit to a relative or friend who will just have to show the membership card at the entrance), saved seats (until 10 minutes before the concert starts), enjoy the artists up close and get to know people with the same music taste as you. In hopes of enriching our culture, the Annual Membership was created to innovate our cultural approach in terms of concerts. The community’s response to this initiative will determine if the project evolves from an experimental project to a constant event alternative. Without any further ado, we look forward to your support! *** Estimados amigos, La Fundación Biblioteca de Boquete, les invita a participar de los múltiples beneficios que ofrece la membresía anual para conciertos. A un costo de B/.100.00, podrán asistir a todos los recitales que se realicen durante doce meses (aproximadamente uno por mes), contados a partir de la fecha de adquisición de la membresía. Al afiliarse, se obtendrán las siguientes ventajas: reducción del costo total, deleitar los sentidos con música de alta calidad, asegurar su cupo, opción de transferencia (si usted no pudiese asistir al evento puede ceder su derecho a un familiar o amigo quien tan sólo deberá presentar el ticket de membresía), puestos reservados (hasta 10 minutos antes del inicio del concierto), apreciar de cerca a los artistas y conocer a personas con quienes se coincide en gustos. En miras del fortalecimiento cultural, la membresía anual ha nacido como una innovación a nuestra propuesta cultural de conciertos. De la aceptación de nuestra comunidad, depende que esta iniciativa trascienda de proyecto experimental a una alternativa permanente. Sin más que agregar…¡esperamos su apoyo! *** We remind of our concert tomorrow: La Pirogue International Classical/folk trio. We attach the program for the event.

    'Down the Fence', 94 minute, Award Winning 2017 Documentary Each year, horse trainers journey to Reno, Nevada to compete for one of the most challenging equestrian championships in the world. For the trainers: winning means putting food on the table and hay in the barn for another year. For the world: it means another year of survival for a culture at risk and the continued refinement of the art of vaquero-style horsemanship that dates back to the first Spanish missions in California.

  15. The Washington Post reports today that there is a high degree of dissatisfaction with Social Security offices and that a select committee has been established in the Senate to look into the matter. The article is here: https://wapo.st/2wJ8iWO The Chair of the select committee is Senator Susan M. Collins (R-Maine), and the Vice Chair is Senator Robert P. Casey, Jr. (D-Pennsylvania). I have written both Senators about the problems Panamanian expats are having since social security functions, previously handled admirably by the U.S. Embassy in Panama, were transferred to the U.S. Embassy in Costa Rica in October 2017. I encourage all of you who have experienced problems in this regard to write Senators Collins and Casey, too. The appointment of this special committee may be our best chance for eliciting change. There are online forms on the following online pages: https://www.collins.senate.gov/contact https://www.casey.senate.gov/contact/ Bonnie Williams Associate U.S. Warden
