  5. We want to thank everyone that took the time to offer what help they could and to share how we over came the transport problem. Thanks to God - Aubrey's red blood cells came up enough to fly (no cruise would take the responsibility). We are purchasing a reclining wheelchair (like a cerebral palsy person has) so he can be transported by plane in a laying position from Toucmen in Panama City (our tickets are for medical assistance). David airport is to small to accommodate us - Luis Acre taxi service out of Panama City (has all size vehicles), will pick us up at our home in Boquete along with our luggage and take us to Toucmen. I hope this information helps others in the future. Lynn Wilson

  14. March 2019 Family of the Month Amado's Family Last November the BVB Newsletter reported that Amado was suffering from a serious stomach disorder that kept him bedridden and unable to work for many weeks. The whole family suffered, and when neighbors alerted us to the situation, Buenos Vecinos stepped in and began to deliver non-perishable food to their door on an emergency basis. Within the last three and a half months, Amado has made a complete recovery. He was able to go back to work in the cane fields because he is once again healthy and strong. His wife, Catalina and his four children, Jovany 14, Jonny 11, Diana 9 and Janeth 5 have also regained their smiles. Amado and Catalina no longer need the food assistance, but they say that they will always remember that Buenos Vecinos helped their family when they needed it most. How to help? If you would like to help our clients and the efforts of Buenos Vecinos de Boquete, we would appreciate your donation of any size. It is important for you to know that we are a small all-volunteer force with no administrative or overhead costs. Every dollar of your donation goes to the purchase or storage of food for our clients. When you make that important decision to help feed the less fortunate in our community, you have truly become a “good neighbor”. When you donate $360 a year or $30 a month, you will become a Coconut Foundation member as an acknowledgment of your concern and generosity. Donate Online: We use PayPal for easy and secure transactions. If you prefer to donate by cash or local check, please contact Louise Orr panamaleo@gmail.com for arrangements.

  18. Dear Friends of Jim and Shirley Maffitt, Tomorrow, we will be smiling and laughing ... remembering Dear Jim. Jim and Shirley joined Dave and me, and many of you, in the joy, of a small community theater back in the beginning of BCP(Boquete Community Players). Imagine, a theater, in a small mountain town in the country of Panama. Through the years Jim and Shirley were present , no matter what play or event was happening. Jim's stature (he is Tall) and demeanor (dignified) were perfect foil for his lively English wife, Shirley. Remember their "George and Gracie Act", and Dancing Pairs? They both were "Luminaires ' on our stage many times, in their own individual roles. Jim and Dave were perfect foils for "Older Great Guys... without great memories", and former San Francisoites, that loved the "old 49ers Football team", and Happy lunching guys at Friday "Romeos". Jim was a "Star" in every sense of the word. Break a leg, Jim. Love y Abrazos to You and Shirley Erin Ross
