Among those represented were Naval Sector, Port Authorities, all levels of the police, Angeles Verde, Fire Department, Life Guards, 911 Operators, Transit Department, Red Cross, all of Cozumel Hospitals, public and private, volunteer groups and even the Taxi Union.
Cozumel Mayor Perla Tun thanked everyone involved in working together to ensure that Cozumel residents and Tourists both Foreign and National have an accident free vacation and if an accident does occur, that it is prevented from becoming a fatality.
The Sun Garage Sale, formerly known as “The On-Going Garage Sale” was started as a means to collect gently used clothing and goods to be donated to the poor and/or sold at low cost to raise funds for our many projects in Las Fincas and our immediate neighborhood.
We have donated or sold the majority of the second hand clothing and articles we collected in 2016. Our garage sales will resume again next month, and need your donations. Please consider dropping off the items you no longer use or need at our home/store #1081 35 Avenida between Calles 17 & 15 Bis. You can also call at 987-118-4453 or 987-120-5902 to arrange a pick up at your home. All Clothing, Housewares, Furniture, Appliances, etc. will be greatly appreciated. Your donations or proceeds from your donations are guaranteed to go towards a family in need or to a good cause. A special Thank you to Ron & Tina Mannes, Kathy McGinn, and other contributors for their generosity.
