  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. Augustin, of Viva Mexico, wants to share the traditional (not expanded for tourists) happenings of the Day of the Dead. At Viva Mexico, a small group will get together at 1 p.m. to order from his new menu. It includes salads and his outstanding traditional Mexican meals, plus great steak and lamb. He will talk with us about the altar and life on the Day of the Dead in San Juan Cosala over his life time. Then we will walk or drive up to the cemetery and see the devotion of the villagers to their ancestors. Because this is meant to be a very small group, I have only 6 places left. Please email me to reserve them. Thanks, Carol
  3. 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. Agustin has decided to treat all who come to this benefit dinner to a buffet of delicious food... lots of choices and plenty of food. So, instead of just having a beef, chicken, or veggie meal, you can have a great variety of food from the best at Lakeside. For 300 pesos, you are getting this wonderful meal and supporting the educational needs of the neediest kids in San Juan Cosala. We all know that without an education, our children have fewer options to get out of poverty. And without tutoring and academic support, too many cannot make it. Operation Feed and Agustin are grateful for all who support the needs of our families. Tickets are available until Thursday at noon at Mia's and Diane Pearl's. If you can't get there, you can always donate through our website. Operation Feed Thanks so much, Carol
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. We always enjoy the Mexican food at Viva Mexico. But I was interested in trying their pasta special after learning that a former chef at Bella Vita now works at Viva Mexico. The shrimp fettucini pasta ($120 pesos) was not on the menu as it was a "special" that the wait staff shared with us. I thought it was a treat to eat hand made fettucini that came in a delicate mild tomato sauce with shrimp. I finished my meal with their tiramisu - which I also rate highly. We ate at Viva Mexico today, Friday, and the place looked really nice - all the tables had fresh flowers.
