Amigos de Jaltemba is Growing and Welcomes Your Input

Dave Easby - Amigos de Jaltemba
November 18, 2012

The members of Los Amigos de Jaltemba and other interested persons are invited to attend and participate in informal discussions on Monday, November 19 or Monday, November 26 at 6:00 pm at the new Community Cultural Center (CCC) located at Reuben Jaramillo #9 in La Peñita. The CCC can be found 1 block North of the OXXO.

After more than 5 years of growth, expansion and change, it is time for Los Amigos to consider organizational changes to help meet the challenges and opportunities before us.

Over these years our recycling program has expanded to cover the entire Jaltemba Bay area and collections have grown to almost 4000 kilos per month; scholarships have increased from 8 to 40 CONALEP students; 4 new kindergartens have been built and another 9 schools have been repaired or renovated; and new services for children, teachers, schools and the larger community have been added.

Los Amigos is recognized as an important part of the greater community and is being invited towards greater community involvement. And, Los Amigos is enjoying the benefits of a close working relationship with the Rotary Club of Jaltemba Bay and its network of companion Rotary Clubs in Canada and the United States.

By moving from an all-volunteer membership organization with elected officers to a paid executive director supervised by a board of directors, we believe Los Amigos will be better positioned to take the enterprise forward into the foreseeable future.

On Monday, December 3 at 7:00 pm at the CCC, the members of Los Amigos will hold a formal meeting to consider 2 motions that, if passed, will begin the process of making these important organizational changes.

All members of Amigos de Jaltemba and other interested parties are encouraged to attend and to participate.
