Baking with Kids at the Jaltemba Community Center

By Viky Robelo

Friday was the first day of the baking class for children at the Jaltemba Bay community center, CCC, in La Peñita. The class was attended by 15 children who paid $100 pesos each for the course including their very own donated apron. It is the policy of the community center to include children who cannot afford the price of any course. In this case two children entered free of charge.

There was bread with raisins, cinnamon and oregano.

The community center is supported by donations and fund raising like the recent Tacky Tourist Party. For a list of upcoming events check this link: Upcoming Events.

Spanish Lesson:

Below is the email Viky sent me with very few changes. I added a bit of punctuation. It is common to receive emails like this from local folks without capitalization, accents and punctuation even from teachers so I thought it would make a good example:

hoy primer dia de panadería para niños se elaboro pan blanco de pasas,canela,pan amarillo,oregano.
se mandaron hacer mandiles de tela donada para los niños el costo fue de $100.00 pesos lo cual inclua un mandil. fue divertido asistieron 15 niños de lso cuales 2 fue gratis por ser niños de bajos recursos al final se repartio el pan entre todos. fantastico.
