Ajijic benefit food fair
Ajijic’s Pasión de Cristo and Manos Solidarios volunteer organizations are joining forces to put on a two-day food fair to benefit local families facing financial distress to provide health care for ailing relatives.
The Ajijic Nos Cuida Kermés will take place at the village plaza Saturday, October 15, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday, October 16, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The families in urgent need of help will set up more than 20 stands around the square to sell a variety of foods and snacks. Music and dance performances will be on tap. Local barbers will be there on Saturday to offer grooming services to those in attendance, chipping in their proceeds to the event’s beneficiaries.
Vote From Abroad
Vote From Abroad can help you request and return your U.S. Election ballot. But now you have fewer options. We strongly recommend that you return your ballot by October 21 at latest—it doesn’t matter whether you can mail, email or fax it back. At this stage, use DHL or other international express service to mail back your ballot (as 23 states require).
Need help? Visit us this Monday, October 17 at the Lake Chapala Society (LCS) from 10 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
