New Space for Kids Club Donated to Amigos de La Cruz by Local Residents

This wonderful space is being donated to Amigos' use for one year by local residents Dawn & Jon Moss. The contract and insurance are being worked out this next week. But Amigos has been allowed to move into the space but not hold classes until the details are completed.

This new space became necessary when Carmen was told that she had to move out of her library by June 1, as the primaria (elementary school) needed the classroom for next year. The parents and principal were hoping to raise enough money to add a structure within the grounds by June 1, but they were unable to do so.  

After meeting with the AM principal, Carmen and her band of volunteers including Line Bureau, Beth, Amy, Jenny & David Marshall, Steve Cross, Berenice Uribe and the children - moved Carmen's materials to the new space and started putting all in order.  

Workers came in to install sinks and faucets, repair toilets, secure cabinets and put desks and bookshelves together.  

After the installation is complete, the whole space is to be thoroughly cleaned.

A special thanks to Berenice and Carmen's daughter Heidi in Guadalajara, for providing furniture, which includes a play kitchen area for the children to learn English through play.

When all is completed, Carmen will have an Open House. Already parents and children are stopping by to look into the windows.  

Volunteers are figuring out how they can participate: Beth to teach English through puzzles and games; Carmen & Jenny teaching reading and writing in Spanish to those first and second graders who are struggling; David teaching science and magic tricks. Parents have also stopped by to ask about classes in English for adults.

The new Kids Club is located at Coral #5 in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Riviera Nayarit. Stop by to say "hi" or to volunteer.

What fun!
