Colby and Joe sent gifts for Scout and Patches.....the toys were a big hit!  Scout put her claim on the ones that had noise makers in inside.

Amigos de Los Ninos de Mexico

We were apart of a group of volunteer that passed out toys and food to the children in Nuevo Progress, Mexico, on Christmas morning. Above photo shows Jan with the gang from Llano Grande RV Resort.
Jan, Carol and Claus at the elementary school where the event took place.
The passing out of toys and food was proceed by a Christmas Parade...above are some parade characters.
The line was around the block waiting for the doors to open.  We figure that gifts were passed out to 3,000 plus children.

Each child got to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus.......

Everyone had a chance at the pinata....candy! candy! candy!
We were all told to give our Santa Hats away....this is the young lady that Ted gave his hat to.
Jan passed out bead necklaces and boxes of rice. The children each had two large bags of goods when they headed home.

Nuevo Progreso, Mexico Welcomes Back the "Winter Texans"

Nuevo Progreso’s many restaurants, trinket shops, vendors selling authentic Mexican clothing and pottery, pharmacies and dental clinics have attracted Winter Texans for years. The businesses of Nuevo Progreso welcomes back the Winter Texans each year with a fiesta in Dec and an appreciation day in March.

 With music, dancing and food the fiesta was enjoyed by all.....

We have helped the Nuevo Pregreso economy with the purchase of souvenirs, new glasses and both Ted and Jan have had their teeth cleaned at one of the local dentists. All with big savings over US prices.Posted by Picasa
