Wednesday was a special appreciation evening for the “Cancer de Mama” organizers and volunteers. This year the “Cancer de Mama” clinic will be held at the Club de la Tercera Edad in La Peñita the first week of February instead of at the usual venue at the RV park.

The seniors served pozole, tamales and tostadas to about 40 visitors.
