Early – Mid July Happenings on the Island – July 9, 2010

Sunday, July 4th was declared a “dry” day (no alchohol sales) due to local and state elections. Elections results:

Governor of Quintana Roo: Roberto Borge
President (Mayor) of Cozumel: Aurelio Joaquin
District VIII Representative (Diputado): Freddy Marrufo

Friday, July 9 officially begins school vacation for Cozumel students and teachers. The school year runs longer than in the US due to the frequency and length of holidays and celebrations throughout the school year. Classes for the 2010-11 school year will begin in mid-August.

KUDOS . . . Special congratulations to Nuria, age 16, local student whose excellent grades and outstanding test scores resulted in her being excused from the last month of school! She was the envy of her classmates. Nuria has a special family relationship like an adopted daughter with Ray and Sandy Ham, local Friends of Cozumel volunteers. Nuria joined us for a few February 2010 Mission Trip activities . . . setting-up the “Gran Bazar” and visiting the CAM school for children with disabilities.

Bible School programs open to all children in the community begin next week at NUAFA, followed by week-long sessions sponsored in various locations by churches and mission efforts. –Karen
