This past month has been filled with many community activities. In Costa Rica Mother’s Day is celebrated in July. Cornelio and I were invited to play music for the local elementary school Mother’s Day dinner. He played the guitar and I played the saxophone. It was a great opportunity to get to know more people from our town; Palmichal.
September 15 is Independence Day for Costa Rica. Cornelio was invited to be one of the announcers for the Tabarcia Independence Day community gathering. He and some of his acting friends did the announcing and introductions. It was done with humor and small skits. I managed our sound system and music while Cornelio and his friends entertained the crowd. There were over 1,000 people who attended. We felt honored to be asked to be part of this big event.
