Yesterday at Escual Primaria – J. Cruz Guardado Bautista in the La Colmena neighbourhood of Guayabitos the All Schools program of Jaltembay Bay Rotary brought together a volunteer day to make repairs and paint two classrooms.

The place was a hive of activity. If you know a bit of Spanish you might catch the pun – colmena means bee hive.

Mamas, papas, niños and Rotarians scraped, patched and painted:

There are always a few cuties at these events that like to get involved but are a bit too young.

Thank you for sending us these wonderful pictures of a VERY WORTHWHILE endeavor. It would have been fun and satisfying for you but very exciting for the people who live in that town. We know the people of the community would have been very grateful. Wonderful work.

What a fabulous job. Jim and Hazel have been volunteer English teachers at this school for their second year now and this has been a project they wanted to accomplish for the school. Congratulations everyone on a job well done .

The Rotary Club will be involved in a similar way as they were on this project through “The All Schools Project.” They meet Wednesday mornings at the Pina Colada. We’ve helped twice doing cleaning & painting at schools and it is always a rewarding and truly satisfying day!
