Feria Holiday Sale

Maestros del Arte is planning a small event at the Lake Chapala Society Friday to Sunday, December 4-6, in an effort to continue assisting artisans through Covid-19. The pandemic has created extreme hardships for most artisans, say organizers of this annual lakeside event that, sadly, was placed on hold this year.

pg13b

Come see these wonderful offerings from 23 Mexican artisans from Chihuahua, Guerrero, Michoacan, Jalisco, Hidalgo, Puebla, Chiapas, Mexico State and Oaxaca — everything from decorated gourds to ceramic angel images of Ruth Bader Ginsberg. There will also be Hanukkah ornaments for sale.

The Feria has been selling on its website, as well as Facebook, but this is a great way to check out in person holiday ornaments, and another way for the craftsmen and women to make money. All of the proceeds go to the artisans.

The event, to be held at the Neill James/Open Circle patio, will adhere strictly to social distancing and wearing masks. The Feria Holiday Sale will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sunday. Please bring your own bag.

British Society

The Lakeside British Society will meet via Zoom Saturday, December 5, 2 p.m. Members will receive information via e-mail. If you are not on the mailing list contact Arleen Foster, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., for further details.

Christmas Toy Run

As with everything else this year, the annual Toy Run in the Chapala area has been directly affected by Covid-19 restrictions. Gloria Allen of the American Legion Post 7 Ladies Auxiliary and Cyndi Bosch of the Los Gueros Motorcycle Club have been working together on an alternative plan for toy distribution.

Toys and candy will be delivered to the Chapala police station on Saturday, December 12, 10 a.m. for distribution to the children of the police officers and staff – approximately 150 children. The children of firefighters and staff will receive toys and candy as well.

The Ladies’ Auxiliary will deliver toys and candy on Thursday, December 24 to the 24 children residing at the Love in Action orphanage.

Donations are still needed for the police department and fire department children (2 to 10 years of age) and can be delivered to American Legion Post 7, Morelos 114 in Chapala or at Mama’s Bar, Gonzalez Gallo 86 in San Antonio Tlayacapan through December 11.
