  1. Operation Feed supports over 550 villagers in San Juan Cosala. We work to raise the funds without impacting other Lakeside charities. So, during the "low season" we have our two big events. April 26th beginning at 4:30 p.m. at Viva Mexico is our first of the year. Come on over and feast on an Agustin buffet. Meet some of the micro-business members. Shop through the 30 items basket auction. Your 450 pesos will buy you an amazing many course buffet dinner with vegan and vegetarian items and delicious desserts. Plus you will have provided a family with a despensa (food bag) for 3 weeks. Tickets are available at Diane Pearl's and Mia's. Or just email me and I'll arrange personal delivery. If you can't come, think about buying tickets for some who has been really helpful to you or paying for tickets that can be given to some of our outstanding Mexican assistants.
  2. We know that soon it will be “low season”, but we are still counting on 100 people wanting a great meal that supports 102 families in San Juan Cosala. Everyone knows how much Agustin does to support Lakeside, and he is pulling out all the stops to make this event special. Plus the team has been working to create unique silent auction items and fun entertainment. With the change in times, we will have an extra hour before dark to enjoy the spirit raffles and live entertainment. So get your tickets now. If you want to reserve a table, just let us know. And we are getting drivers lined up for transportation to and from Ajijic if you don’t drive.

  4. Happy Holidays from Operation Feed Click on the link ABOVE to read our newsletter. Find out what's happening and what you can do to help the people of San Juan Cosala. And come to the Street Art Fair outside of Viva Mexico on Dec. 9th beginning at 2:00 p.m. Lots of villagers are preparing food, crafts, and more to earn some money for their own needs. Supporting them will make a huge difference in their lives. Thanks, Carol Curtis
  5. Ever wonder what Operation Feed does with your donations? Well, here's just one week of our work. Your donations and the time put in by volunteers are making a big difference in the lives of many in San Juan Cosala. We are so grateful to all who support our cause. One Week with Operation Feed
  6. Most of those living at Lakeside know Agustin, owner of Viva Mexico and guardian angel of San Juan Cosala. Always willing to help anyone and giving to all in need, one of Agustin's major goals is to help more children gain an education. He is so grateful to all those who helped him along the way and wants to give back. He and his family are turning the bottom floor of their home into a tutoring center for local children who need to get educational support. There will even be a computer center located there for the children's use with home, online classes, and language tutorials. And as always, when Agustin pays it forward ... it is great for so many of us. One thing that he decided this morning was to make the fund raising dinner on April 28th into a buffet, so that all who come can eat a wider variety of delicious foods. So even though his "cut" of the fund raiser will decrease, he wants "his kids" to have what it takes to be successful. Just wanted to give a shout out to this great man.
  7. I know that many people have had their fill of charity events. Operation Feed works hard to keep events at a minimum, but we have a need for support for the April 28th event. Too many children in San Juan Cosala drop out of school very early ... for many reasons. One big reason is that they fall behind in their studies and just can't keep up. It's hard to go to school every day and feel stupid. Operation Feed is working on this problem. We want our despensa families to keep their children in school. So to make this possible, we want to provide a summer school program that will help our kids be ready for the next grade. We need to hire Mexican teachers, provide a snack, and pay for some materials. Our solution to the need for this money is to host a dinner on April 28th at Viva Mexico. The funds will pay for the summer program for 50 kids. Check out the photo of part of a page of the English workbook that our kids are supposed to be able to do in September of 9th grade. You can see why we have to provide extra support. And the photo of the young lady? She hasn't been able to be in school for two years. Her mom has been working at the berry farms; Itzel has had to stay home and ensure that the little children get to school and have their meals. Through a grant Operation Feed and NCA received, we are going to get Itzel back into high school. Her extended family will help ensure the little ones are cared for. Itzel wants to be a teacher and is determined to make it. But without a summer program, the two year gap in her education might make it very hard. Please consider dragging yourself to one more event. You will be helping our kids get an education and supporting Agustin and Viva Mexico. Tickets available at Diane Pearl's and Mia's. Or you can contact me and I'll make sure we reserve your seats and table. Carol Curtis
  8. Since 1964 we have been offering the benefits of thermal mineral water, becoming a tradition around the Lake Chapala area. The thermal water’s rich contents, the excellent climate and our friendly staff will make an unforgettable experience for you and your friends or family. This is the place where you can soak in the thermal baths or swim in one of or many pools, try the treatments at the spa section or just relax and enjoy a drink from the bar while sunbathing. We have a special discount on the main entrance fee for everyone with a LCS credential.
  9. Hello all -- will be visiting between Christmas and New Year's. Would it be a nice day adventure to go down to SJC and spend some time around a pool/hot springs? If so, can anyone suggest their favorite place for two mellow adults to go? Many thanks!
  10. We just completed a great clothing drive for the people of San Juan Cosala. Operation Feed, through the wonderful community support, was able to provide clothing to more than 300 people. So many happy faces who were grateful for sweaters and coats ... shoes and socks ... and some lovely general clothing items. Through the work of Cheryl Kennedy, we were able to provide sanitary napkins and adult diapers to those who needed them. As always, the children's clothes were the most prized of all. As the holidays get closer and we all become so grateful for what we have, Operation Feed hopes that you will consider a small donation to help us feed the over 500 very poor residents of San Juan Cosala. Many are senior citizens (who don't receive a pension or social security) and are suffering from diabetic complications and simple old age problems. We are also helping families who have members suffering from cancer or liver/kidney failure. Plus our single moms struggling to feed their children and keep them in school. Donations can be made through our website via PayPal. Or, even better is coming to Viva Mexico for a great meal and dropping some change into our Operation Feed can. Thank you so much for supporting us. Carol Curtis and all the Operation Feed volunteers http://operationfeed.weebly.com

  12. Did anyone else see the huge fire on the mountain between San Juan Cosala and the Raquet Club tonight? It looked huge, but there were never any sirens. You can see pictures here: https://judydykstrabrown.com/2016/05/01/omg-the-entire-mountain-in-front-of-my-house-is-on-fire/ It seems to have died down now that the wind has died down but I can't believe no one else has mentioned it. There is still a small fire up above around where the cross used to be. Click on the photos to enlarge them.
  13. A big happening in San Juan Cosala. One person's dream ... Nancy Brown... helped by a terrific team of expats and lots of SJC residents is about to open tomorrow. Nancy has wanted to help the disadvantaged in San Juan Cosala and is going to do it through a token store. She has collected many items that the families need by asking her Austin Tx community and her friends here to help her get it started. You can read about what's going on by going to the link provided. There are a lot of photos showing how the practice set-up went today. And even more importantly, you might clean out a kitchen drawer or a linen closet and donate to this excellent cause. It really is a "hand up not a hand out" project. http://operationfeed.weebly.com/token-store.html
  14. Ten wonderful Mexican women work several days a week at the Community Garden in San Juan Cosala. They are raising vegetables for their families and to sell to others. They also are starting a small nursery of plants and herbs. Each Saturday morning we are open to the public from about 9:30 to 11:30; the entire team is present to work on a new project or keep the ones already underway in good shape. We do so appreciate all who come to support their efforts. This week Theresa Beach brought us already started Swiss Chard which we happily got into the ground immediately. If anyone else has some already started herbs, we'd love to include them in our next project. We are going to start herb gardens that the women can take home for their own cooking, as well as additional ones to have for sale to others. The garden is pretty easy to find. But if you'd like further directions or information, please PM me. I can provide you with detailed directions and information about other ways you can help these dedicated women. Check out the Operation Feed website and newsletter. It has a lot of information about this and other projects. Here's a link to the Community Garden page and from there you can check out the newsletter about all the related projects. https://operationfeedsjc.squarespace.com/community-garden-project/ Carol
  15. https://operationfeedsjc.squarespace.com/ I knew a little about Operation Feed and had donated via events. But I happened to come across their website and gained much knowledge and respect for the efforts being made. The website is beautiful ... The photos are amazing ... The writing is moving ... If you need a pick-me-up, check out the website. Your problems will melt away. Carol
  16. If I remember right there is a festival in San Juan Cosala in December. Does anyone know the dates this year for that festival? Or set me straight and let me know that there isn't one.

  18. The President of Jocotepec Municipality recently gave a group of us volunteers permission to proceed with starting a spay/neuter campaign for dogs & cats of poor Mexican families, street dogs, & possibly Anita's Animals, starting in the village of San Juan Cosala!!! We are asking for donations of old towels & blankets, paper towels, shavers, and donations in pesos, USD or Canadian dollars to help us start this important work. We also need both English & Spanish-speaking volunteers, fundraisers, and retired vets wanting to help the community. You may e-mail us at Operacioncompacion@gmail.com to donate, volunteer, or to get more information. We'll also be posting more info in the next few days. Thanks for helping us help the animals!!!
  19. We're new in town and scouting out some places to take company, coming in November. We've driven by the waterfront places in the "tourist zone" at San Juan Cosala... they look interesting and might be fun to take somebody to for the view. We're wondering how the food is, and which one(s) people would recommend for or against. Hoping to go for a lunch or early dinner sometime during the week to avoid the weekend crowds. Thanks for any input. BTW, have already heard about Viva Mexico, but we're specifically interested in the lake view locations. Heather
