On Tuesday, July 31, 2018, the senior citizens of the San Juan del Sur area enjoyed a special day thanks to the Fundación A. Jean Brugger. In this event the elders danced a lot, sang, and won prizes in contests. Baskets with food and basic supplies were also given to 3 elderly women chosen for their economic need. The staff of El Timon served a delicious lunch.
This event took place thanks to the support of Deborah Cornue and Jane Erickson, who have sponsored this activity for three years. Fundación A. Jean Brugger also thanks the owners of El Timón Restaurant and its staff for their co-patronage.
The staff of El Timon always offers a warm reception and gives special attention to the elderly. The seniors commented that they felt very well received and cared for, and were thankful to the waiters for the presentation of the special dance. We thank the company Soluciones Jurídicas, who has supported us on several occasions sponsoring one of the prizes for the competitions.
We also appreciate the collaboration of the students of the Fundación A. Jean Brugger scholarship program, who contributed food items, household supplies, and personal hygiene items for the preparation of the gift baskets. We want to thank the following students for their participation and support in this activity: Ingrid Obando, Ana Odalys Sanchez, Lilieth Jimenez, Maria Jose Sanchez, Karina Chavez, Denisse Tenorio, Ingrid Pérez, Lismadiela Baez, and Joselin Romero.
