The ambulance is back!

I'm delighted to announce that the ambulance is back in service and is running better than ever! A big thank you to mechanic Ramón and his diesel mechanic brother, Gabriel. We were immediately called into service on Saturday, the night of the rodeo, to help an injured person at the jardin. Two of our men plus the new doctor from the Central de Salud were able to treat and transport the injured man successfully. |
I hope that our community can see by now that the ambulance is providing a vital service to La Manzanilla. We operate completely by donations, and so, of course, we will be having a fund-raiser starting on Friday. We'll be raffling off three wonderful pieces of art, a sculpture from Dave Kasprick, a mosaic from Mazinka, and a painting from Carol Lopez. I will have the art on display at tianguis this coming Friday, and I'll post photos so that people at a distance can participate.
Our team is so dedicated to providing this service that they volunteered to accept a lower fee for each call so that they can operate longer during this time of low donations. Please help us to continue providing this invaluable service by making a donation and/or buying raffle tickets.
