Yesterday morning, Lilliam and I went to Multi-Cafe 2 and met Courtney with the US Peace Corps. What a delightful young lady.
You may remember that Courtney wrote me about obtaining some financial assistance for a girl scout group she was mentoring.
I had committed to sponsoring her troop’s membership fee and yesterday was the day that Courtney and I had scheduled for her to pick up the money. I can’t tell you how nice it is to find nice people taking a part of their lives to improve the lives of others.
You may also remember that Courtney said she would contribute some personal accounts of her experiences with the Peace Corps working in Chiriquí. Her first article can be found HERE.
She told me she will be sending me another article soon and it will contain some photos of her group. That gives you something to look forward to.
She said one of her goals was to raise enough money for the troop to come to David for a convention toward the end of the year. I told her not to be concerned because I and the Chiriquí Chatter readers would insure that they had the finances to make the trip.
Courtney it was very nice meeting you. Let me introduce Courtney to all of the Chiriquí Chatter readers so you can have a face to put with the future articles she sends me.
