  2. We at ACCB have met with Chris at Big Daddy's to complete our tally for the Elvis Presley Fundraiser held at Big Daddy's on Jan. 8th. We got the number of fundraiser meals that were purchased that gave us the total for the 2 charities, The Quilters of Boquete and Hogar Triska. Bottom line is we are giving $170.00 to each organization which is more than we collected. We can't say thank you enough to those that came out to play our Elvis trivia games,50/50 raffle and danced to the DJ spinning all of Elvis' songs. A special big thanks to Chris and his staff. All we can say is the people of Boquete are the BEST. Thank you from all of us at ACCBoquete.
  3. Happy New Year friends in Boquete. Many of you have asked "Who is ACCBoquete". The legal registered association name in Panama is ACCBoquete (Asociacion Cardad de la Comunidad de Boquete) . Now you know why we go by ACCBoquete. We started our Association 7 years ago under the name of International Police Association (IPA). Before we completed our membership with IPA it became apparent that money that we raised through our fundraising events would be split between the Boquete community and the IPA International Headquarters. Since we are serving a small community of Boquete we realized that the money we collect in "Boquete" should stay here to help "Boquete". So we started a new association, ACCBoquete (Asociacion Cardad de la Comunidad de Boquete). Our goal is to assist our First Responders....Police, Fire and EMT's of Boquete. We also support other Boquete charitable groups to help them achieve their goals. ACCBoquete is a sponsor of the new Recycle Group (RRR) of Boquete, financially and physically, to clean up the enviornment and educate the children in local schools of the importance of recycling. ACCBoquete has had fundraisers like our annual Poker Run, Oktoberfest, Christmas party and other fun fundraisers at Big Daddy's, The ClubHouse, The Garden and Boulder 54. We pay for Police car/truck repairs that results in police cars on the road for our safety. This past year we have provided financial assistance to the family of an injured Bomberos, to the widow and family of fallen Police Officer, and Financial assistance to the murder victim's family in Boquete. ACCBoquete raised money for a new stove for the Boquete Police Department and a refrigerator for the new substation at the Caldera Checkpoint. We made a cash donation to the JMJ Youth Group at San Juan Baptiste Catholic Church. Our fundraiser/gift donation 8th annual Christmas party at Boulder 54 was a huge success. We collected 138 wrapped Christmas gifts for needy boys, girls and babies in Boquete as well as provided cash donations for food to very needy families in Boquete. Gifts were given to Bill and Gina Bricks Ministries, Louise Orr with Buenos Vecinos de Boquete, Hogar Triska, and Sara and Steve Hudson took gifts and food to Stones Creek Church. Cash donations provided food for Soloy Baptiste Church, El Faro Christian School and San Juan Baptiste Catholic Church for food baskets distributed around Boquetes to very needy families. Cash donations were also given to Quilters/Knitter group to purchase yarn and quilting material for the baby blankets, sweaters, hats and booties that they hand make. For the second year ACCBoquete members had a Bar-B-Que at the Boquete Police Department on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve for all the First Responders that are on duty these holidays, away from their families and loved ones. We served Chili hot dogs, chips, soft drinks, cookies and candies. Plates were prepared and taken to those officers working the check point. Our first fundraiser event for 2019 will be "A Elvis Presley birthday party" on Tuesday, January 8th at Big Daddy's stating at 5 PM - 9 PM. Chris will prepare a special Elvis dinner, there will be music by Elvis, a Elvis look-a-like contest. Lets see if any Ann Margaret look-a-likes show up! Fundraiser moneies to go to the Boquete Knitters and Hogar Triska. In March we are planning another Poker Run, starting and ending at The Clubhouse. More on this later. ACCBoquete has about 48 members. Annual dues are $30. , a one time fee of $11.00 for a ACCBoquete shirt and meetings are second Wednesday of every month at different local restaurants. All the money we collect goes back into the Boquete community. We have planned special trips occasionally and special outings. Besides providing a service to our community we have fun. If you have questions or are interested, contact Joe Hart, President, at 6521-2649, or any of its members for more information. Thank you Boquete friends for a great 2018 and we look forward to a prosperous 2019. Linda Hart

  9. The Club Rotario de Boquete and ACCBoquete would like to thank all the volunteers that supported our Oktoberfest Event. We had around 75 volunteers that gave their time and smiles during a period of 12 hours. We could not have achieved this without all of your help.

  11. Joe Hart, President of ACCBoquete and 2 members Javier Samaniego and Charlie Frogge and the Major of Boquete Police Dept. presented financial support to the widow of one of Boquete's own. The sudden loss of the family breadwinner can be devastating. It is our hope to bring some peace of mind to the family at this time. .
  12. I think Bud Huber, who is a member of ACCBoquete, would do well to sit in as well as he has been doing some research on our support and working with the police in case of emergencies. Will ask him as well. Thanks.

    Oktoberfest 2018

    THANK YOU to everyone that came out to help us (ACCBoquete and Club Rotary) to the Oktoberfest kickoff party last Thursday night at the Boquete Brewery. It was such a blast we blew the power out in all of Boquete. Just kidding!
  14. This is the last day to support this most wonderful event. Nutre Hogar Chiriqui gives hope to these poor young children of Chiriqui. If you haven't been there for a visit, you are missing a great experience. Please see Judith Tovar and her helpers at City Mall before 5:00 today.
  15. Joe Hart, President of ACCBoquete, has been working with the local police in Boquete (and David) for some 6 years now. Our main goal has been to support and work "with" the local Police, learn how They do things and not push the "way we do it in the our Country" down their throats. That is NOT what they want to hear. We have taught them English classes which they are very receptive to. It has taken a long time to develop the respect and to be treated as "one of them" by the local police to the point they share war stories with Joe. Perhaps you should consider Joe Hart meeting beforehand with the Police.
