4th of July/Canada Day Event in Mérida!

 I am a member of the International Women’s Club (IWC) 
of Mérida  – 
We do a lot of stuff to support Mérida
and especially the Women of Mérida.  
And we’re co-sponsoring a fund-raiser.

This particular upcoming fundraising event will provide much needed support and resources for the IWC Scholarship Fund; which helps young women realize their potential and dreams by providing them both financial and mentor support towards their education,  and the Mérida Men’s Club charities, which are the Chixulub Food Bank and the EducaTE Yucatan breakfast program.

This year is an auspicious and banner year for this upcoming 4th of July/Canada Day Event….


Well, because for the first time this event is supported jointly 
by many of our Mérida and Beach Social Groups; 
These include the IWC, the Mérida Men’s Club, theMérida English Language Library (MELL), the Beach Gals, and the SOB (Sons of the Beach). 

This should help make this event a HUGE, and FUN Success!

  1. I have the same problems with the captca code, it's in cuneform, or maybe French!

  2. Indeed Rainie, let's hope a few show up with that donation in USD.

  3. Debi, thanks for making the announcement. The party will be fun. See you there!

    ps speaking of getting my eyes checked, I must be a robot because I can't read half of the captcha boxes

  4. Steve, you missed a letter. it's IWC not IWW, get those glasses checked. LOL, I had to look up Wobblies btw. You are quite an educataion.

  5. Steve Cotton says:

    Good grief! For a moment I thought you had joined The Wobblies.

  6. It's pesos, but if you want to pay 125 USD for a ticket, all of our charities will be grateful.
    I love living in Merida but it's nice to have some gringo culture of the 4th of July.
