A ten-strong work party from the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Midgett rolled up their sleeves last week to finish the total overhaul of a kindergarten in Puerto Vallarta.
For the past six months volunteers from the Navy League, American Legion, visiting ships and other community organizations have put in countless hours totally rehabilitating the Jardin de Niños “Luis Medina Casillas” in Ixtapa. The work has included painting, resealing roofs, repairing deteriorating electrical wiring, landscaping, rebuilding a playground, and improvi uthorities reported ng the safety of the children when entering elevated classrooms.
The Midgett also hosted a ship tour for members of the Puerto Vallarta Navy League. During a reception at Murphy’s Irish Pub, the ship’s captain presented the Navy League with a framed, signed photo of the Midgett, and VIP Magazine presented certificates of appreciation to three Navy Leaguers who were instrumental in completing the Kinder Care Project.
