For her birthday last month, Susan Smith asker her friends to donate to The Palapa Society in lieu of receiving presents. Thank you, Susan for this selfless, thoughtful idea to give back to our community!

Thank you to friends of Donna Shultz - Celia Biagetti , Nancy Stephens , Bobbi Siegfried , Barb Wiesley , Carol Alber and Peggy Rinehart, who donated $200 to the Biblioteca Elena Poniatowska new book fund.

Kate Lewis, Director of The Palapa Adult English Program and owner of the Tecolote Bookstore , provides an additional service by selling Event tickets at her bookstore. This season, Kate sold $12,235 in calendar and ticket sales. What would we do without her?
