Flora & Fauna of Guatemala is the theme in this month’s Photo Contest. Birds were a popular choice of focus for many of the participating photographers. The judges had a difficult time picking the top three and the popular vote brought in another four great photos. The theme for next month’s contest will be Families in Guatemala. Let’s see what happens.

The Rotary Club organization has always been known for doing good deeds in the community and the Rotary Club of Carpinteria Morning, Guatemala Chapter
is no exception. It’s latest project Now It’s Our Turn involves repairing the infrastructure of the Cuerpo de Bomberos Municipales de Antigua (Municipal Firefighters’ Force of Antigua). The communication equipment needs to be repaired or replaced and the living quarters for volunteer firefighters (who work Ad honorem) need to be refurbished, procuring adequate furniture and decent living conditions for both men and women.
Mira Talbott-Pope gives us a progress report on A Community Garden. As she explains, “Our little Community Garden has made wonderful progress! We only have a 12th of an acre but Creando Mi Futuro

Have a great month of May. Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms.
