The 20th of September Get-together at Bikinis beach Bar

Yet another well attended get-together with over 80 people turning up. We would like to thank Harvey for making it a very relaxing afternoon and also many thanks to the people who brought food with them  to share.

The pictures of the get-together are in a gallery at the bottom of this newsletter.

The next get-together

The next get-together will be on Sunday the 6th of December at the Paradise Beach bar in Cabo Branco, starting at 1pm and finishing around 7pm.

Guest speaker will be Deborah Dantas who is a Doctor in Campina Grande. Deborah is going to tell us what kind of medical assistance we can expect to find here in Brasil.

Here is a map showing where the Paradise Beach Bar is located (The blue marker): Aparently, there is no address for the bar, it is opposite Pizza Mia on the beach side of Ave. Cabo Branco about 200 meters from Av. Epitacio Pessoa heading towards Cabo Branco.

As always there will be a book and DVD exchange so be sure to dig out all those old books you keep meaning to bring and swap. We will have Lawyers attending from Mouzalas, Borba & Azevedo and Peixoto to answer your legal questions.

Website News

The new website is up and running. The home page now has a news feed which mainly reflects  national news stories, though, we hope to have more local news, blog entries and useful information in the very near future. Every Wednesday we publish a short list of things to do at the weekend in our “Something for the weekend” section, these items are just a very small sample taken from our “What’s on” page which is updated on a daily basis.

We now have a new automatic e mail sender on the site, so if you register you can select what information you want to receive other than the newsletter. There are a number of categories for you to select from, so if a news item falls into 2 or more categories, you will only receive the story once. (An example: If you click on “Something for the weekend” you will receive an email every Wednesday giving you a list of events coming up the next weekend. This option will be available shortly).

In the new year, I will be adding all the email addresses that are on the current list, you will not need to do anything yourself, unless you want to register under a specific name. I will send out an email explaining this further at the beginning of next year.

Everyone who has already subscribed will continue to receive the newsletter by default.

Our provisional membership list is increasing but not at a rate which is sufficient to enable us to apply to UNIMED for a discount. We hope to contact everyone who has offered to join with a proposition which will help us take the next tstep forward as an association. The one thing we dont want to do is join Unimeds plan with a reduced number of members AND a reduced discount.

Having only 52 members guarantees a maximum discount of around 30%. If you know anyone who has a UNIMED plan and would benefit from a discount then please tell them about the Association. The offer is open to Brasilians as well as foreigners.

Local news

On 28 October at 18.30, the O Núcleo de Comunicação do Projeto Comunidade de Boas Práticas held an event bringing together several works of animation to celebrate the International Day of Animation. The event took place in the  grounds of the Teatro Santa Catarina in Cabedelo .

Several films made by members of the film team at the ONG were shown some giving an insight into life in the area around Jacare.

Raquel de Amorim, one of the founders of Paraiba Paradise works at the ONG as a coordinator, illustrating the links that are being made by working with the community.

You wil soon be able to see some of the films in the video section of the website.
