02/13/2018 VistAmerica & Penasco Rotary Club improving kids' vision

By José Antonio Pérez www.rockypoint360.com


More than 60 elementary children from area schools can now see better thanks to the vision campaign of VistAmerica and the local Rotary Club held in November 2017, culminating in delivery of the free eyeglasses in  January 2018.  This was the fourth time VistAmerica and the Rotary club of Puerto Peñasco have teamed up, and together the program was able to provide custom eyeglasses to 66 children from across the city. The main goal is to help children and families who may not be able to pay for glasses on their own though will greatly benefit from the eyeglasses, particularly in school.


02/13/2018 1st Fish Bowl Seafood Fest key in Rotary fundraising efforts!

On the Saturday before the Superbowl, the Rotary Club of Puerto Peñasco, in coordination with artisans of the Mermaid's Arts Market, successfully held their 1st Festival de Mariscos - aptly named "Fish Bowl".  The Seafood Fest, which the club plans to make an annual event, aims to raise important funds for Rotary’s ongoing projects across the city. María Dolores “Loly” Monteverde Sesma, 2017-2018 President of the CR Mar de Peñasco, A.C. Rotary Club, detailed numbers for the day topped 500 attendees, who enjoyed seafood samples from 15 area restaurants, as well as dishes prepared by the Dialysis Center, and culinary students from both CEUNO and UTPP, along with art.   A small sign of the club's efforts could already be seen at the entrance to Shrimp Park  when entering from Blvd. Fremont for the "Fish Bowl", where Monteverde Sesma had already put work into “patching” an area to ensure handicap access to the park – completed just the night before the event!
