Friends of Holy Cross School is holding our annual Cinco De Mayo fundraiser Saturday May 3rd 2008
Last year we raised over 20,000 bzd thanks to many people who helped out through donating time, prizes, money, food, percentages of the bar and much more.
This year’s event will be even more spectacular. Many businesses in San Pedro are already stepping up and showing their support. Wet Willys has agreed to host the event and many have started making donations for the auction which will be done by professional auctioneer Doug Willey. Blue Lotus, Portofino, Sol Spa, Master Zac, Christos, Capt Jack, Carole Goudreau Esthetic, Casa Picasso have already made donations towards Cinco De mayo 2008.
We are looking for volunteers locally abroad to help us raise money for the school. If you are interested in helping out and would like to know more please contact me through the email listed in blog profile.

I was reading Inspiration Sandwich, one of my Sark books yesterday and I came across the piece below, I thought it was worth posting in the school blog. For those of you planning to make a visit to Ambergris Caye and have time to visit the school on your trip, it is a very worthwhile experience. There is a lot to be learned from enjoying the company of the kids here on the island.
Follow a child – Taken from the book Inspiration Sandwich by Sark.
A child’s world is made up of spirit and miracles. We sometimes think that children should follow us, listen to us, become like us.
Follow a child closely for an hour. Not to teach or to discipline but to learn and to laugh.
My friend Edie and I were talking in the phone, when her two children Meridith and Clairborne interrupted us with their shrieks and giggles. Edie said “Oh my God. They are stomping on Ritz crackers in their bare feet. Remember how good that felt? I can’t watch. I don’t want to stop them, but I can’t watch.”
She went into another room, and we continued our conversation. Her willingness to allow the Ritz cracker stomping led me to write: “How to Really Love a child.”
My Eight year old friend Stephanie comes over to draw on my walls and read my newest writings. This particular day, I I felt angry at a friend and decided to ask Stephanie’s advice.
“What do you do when you’re really mad at a friend?” I asked.
She thought for a moment.
“Oh, that! Well. Usually you wait until one person forgets, and then that one calls up the other one and says “ Do you want to play?”
