  1. Latest Information This picture is of the Arco Iris room, just across the bridge on the corner of the Feria grounds. As you can see it has good lighting, plenty of space and a clean, evenly tiled floor. Since this picture was taken, ceiling fans have been installed and provide wonderful air circulation. We are working with the MINSA regulations for reopening and can tell you that even with the social distancing requirements, there is room for all our previous vendors plus some from our waiting list. If you know of other vendors we have not been able to accommodate in the past, please have them contact us - we now have space available! As before, we will also welcome all charities and non-profits at no cost, so they can let Boquete know about their great services. For the vendors: BCP will operate the market much as it was before our move. If we provided you with a table - we will still do so, if you brought your own you can still do so and you will not have to struggle with steps, wind and rain. Electricity can be supplied at your table at no additional cost. Our customers will be protected from the weather and be able to find you without searching. Whatever you were paying at the old location will not change for the foreseeable future and we are planning a special deal while you are getting used to the new location. The area at the right hand side of the room is particularly bright and ideal for jewelry displays, there is a kitchen area where we will be able to make and serve coffee etc. We know our customers will love this new area because it is so easy to move around without bottlenecks in doorways and uneven floors, and none of the vendors will be hidden away. We are planning a special event for opening day, all we need now is the date when we will be able to start but unfortunately that is not up to us. We are ready as soon as we get the go-ahead!
  2. We are at last able to give you our good news about the future of BCP’s Tuesday Market! Over the years, BCP’s Tuesday Market has evolved from its humble beginnings at the Fundadores Hotel to its recent location at what is now TapOut. We are now able to move into a better location than ever before. As soon as the health precautions allow, we will be opening in the Arco Iris Room at the Feria grounds. As before, this is just over the bridge, but now on the left - the room is right on the corner. This room is so large that even obeying social distancing with 2 meters between tables, we will be able to have all our vendors under one roof. You will no longer have to brave the wind and the rain to reach everyone. The room is bright and clean, the lighting is good and there are excellent bathroom facilities We are very excited to be able to use this facility which is a very positive step from all that has gone before. We are working with MINSA to ensure that the market will be held in such a way that everyone will be safe. Whatever limits are put on us we will be ready to welcome you back. For more information email info@eventsboquete.org To inquire about being a vendor: email market@eventsboquete.org
  3. We are pleased to announce that the theater space at the TapOut building will continue to be used for Boquete's theater and other productions. BCP and TapOut have been in negotiations to allow this to happen. Despite BCP's initial offer to rent the theater space from Tapout for BCP productions, TapOut management has generously agreed to allow BCP productions to continue in the theater at no cost so that community theater may continue. Other productions and events may also be held in the Boquete Community Theater now that BCP can leave their equipment in place. Of course, there is no indication yet as to when we might be able to stage productions or what social distancing limitations may exist, but BCP intends to stage the play, "Blithe Spirit" as soon as possible once government restrictions are lifted.
  4. Greetings! We hope you are staying safe and finding fun ways to spend your time in quarantine. This a difficult period worldwide, but we hope you and your loved ones are maintaining safe social distances and are healthy, even if a bit bored! Here at BCP, we are also maintaining our social distance, which makes it a bit challenging to finalize plans to relocate effective July 1. We continue to scope out possibilities, discuss options with several possible locations and are busy making plans to move BCP's equipment and belongings to a new location or to storage, as appropriate, once we settle on a new location. Please be assured that all of BCP's assets will be used again, although some may stay in storage until the need for them arises. If you have suggestions for a new location or comments you'd like to make, please feel free to send them to info@eventsboquete.org. We welcome all written suggestions, as we will not be holding any public meetings for the foreseeable future given the current quarantine. If you are holding tickets for Blithe Spirit, be assured that we WILL be conducting performances as soon as the current restrictions are lifted and the cast and crew can get organized again. If you have tickets for the shows we were unable to perform, please be assured that we will happily refund the cost of the ticket or provide the opportunity to exchange them for an upcoming performance. Hopefully, this pandemic will end soon and we will all be able to enjoy all the benefits of BCP and Boquete again. In the meantime, stay safe! BCP Board of Directors
  5. New and exciting changes are on the horizon for BCP! Boquete Community Players Foundation was formed 15 years ago. In the years following, an enthusiastic group of volunteers, through hard work and generous donations, turned an empty shell of a dilapidated building into a thriving community center that now serves as the heart of the Boquete community. The goal of the BCP is to serve its community, and over the past 15 years, it has consistently met that goal in many ways. It provides mail services and serves as an information center where charities, groups, and individuals can reach out to the community through the Tuesday talks. It established the Tuesday Market, where local businesses and individuals sell their wares, and charities share their services. It hosts community charity events and acts as Boquete’s Center for the Arts with its productions of popular plays, musicals, and art shows. There have been Christmas parties for local children and Christmas Singalongs for the entire community. In short, the BCP has become the heart of the Boquete community. It is now time to move on with a view to enhancing our role in the future. Beginning July 1, 2020, while it is still committed to serving the Boquete community, the BCP will no longer do so at its current location. Its board of directors is establishing new locations for all of its activities, including the Tuesday Market. Details will be announced very soon, including our first production in a new venue. We’d like to extend our deepest gratitude to the founders of the BCP. It’s hard to imagine what Boquete would be like now if they had not had the foresight to establish this wonderful organization. We’d also like to thank the many volunteers who give tirelessly of their time and efforts. And we especially would like to thank our members for their generous support over the years. July 1st brings change and a new beginning for the BCP. We’re excited by the opportunities this change brings and are dedicated to ensuring that the BCP continues to serve as the heart of the Boquete community. The BCP Board of Directors

The ages of patients that received Rife treatments during that time range from four days to 94 years.

Immigrants attracted to Panama by its ideal climate often remain naively unaware of its unique hidden hazards, many of which can be avoided by knowing the "warning signs" and making wise decisions. This talk focuses on hazards with a geological connection; volcanoes, earthquakes, landslides, and mega-floods. In general, all of these can be mitigated by living on stable high ground with a sustainable, potable groundwater supply. I will show you how to recognize the warning signs using visual examples (slides) from the Boquete area.
