The evenings are starting to get warmer again, and have been the perfect temperature to enjoy the evening without wearing a light jacket. The days continue to be sunny and warm - ideal weather for a day on the beach, surfing, or going out on a boat.
Costa Verde's Annual Fundraiser, a Luau Party this year, was Wednesday, and as always, was great fun! There are still some large ticket items available for bid, so if you missed out, you still have a chance to bid on these great items! You'll find more details about this below in the blurb, "Costa Verde's Luau and Adopt a Scholar Program."

THANK YOU FROM CASA NAMASTE
As you are most likely aware, Casa Namaste experienced a traumatic event approximately 20 days ago. If it had not been for this spectacular community, for my caring neighbors, for the volunteer fireman, the lifeguards, and many others that I am unable to name, not only would have Casa Namaste been more badly damaged by fire, but many more homes would have been potentially damaged.

PET OF THE WEEK
Hola! I am Ana, a 3 year old, female, pittbull piggy mix. I was found in really bad condition. I was skin and bones, full of ticks and had just had puppies. I am now feeling much better and have gained weight, am bug free, and ready for adoption. I am a distemper survivor, which has left me with a small twitch in my mouth. My foster thinks it is really cute and gives me character. I am the sweetest dog you will ever meet. I am calm, love to be by a humans side, get along great with other dogs, cats, horses, and chickens. I enjoy beach walks and snuggling. I would not be the best pet for a runner, because I'm a low rider and my legs are too short to run fast. hehehe. If you are looking for a loyal, sweet tempered, no issues dog.....look no further! Let my friends at Sayulitanimals know if you would like to meet me! Contact SayulitAnimals here.
