Kudos to all those who have volunteered or donated.  Parque Bolivar looks better already! However, the job is not done and the campaign has one more day left.  If you have it in your heart and in your schedule, come down to the park tomorrow anytime between 7 am and 4 pm.  You will be greeted by a group of volunteers who want to pitch in and take care of their community’s park.

Nicholas Corea is the owner and editor of the Bocas Breeze. He wasn't born in Bocas, but he got there as fast as he could. Just one of the many foreigners who became enamored with the enchantment of the islands, his mission is to share the majesty of Bocas del Toro with the world. Nicholas aka Nico, has been known to love literature and live music concerts. Nothing makes him happier than when others are interested in this entertaining and informative community newspaper. Mr. Corea would like to send his gratitude to all who read and support the Bocas Breeze; for it takes a village to publish a community newspaper!
