cruzrojaDecember 1, 2010 at Cruz Roja International Volunteers Chapala (CRIVC)

General Meeting a New Board was elected. This New Board is made up of all Volunteers.

2011 CRIVC Board:

President: Pancho Deriger, Vice President: Debbie Thompson,

Treasurer: Raylene Williamson, Secretary: Suzanne Foster

PR Director: Megan Tingen, Directors: Donna Shannon and Don Marie Fraser.

Appointees: Past President: Charlie Klestadt, LCS Table Coordinator: June Cooper, Donations Coordinator: (acting) Lori Burnworth

New President Pancho Deriger stated even though it was planned in 2010, the first official function for the new board occurred January 1, 2011, The Mexican version of the Second Annual Polar Bear Swim in Lake Chapala.Thirteen brave souls and two dogs entered the water in front of the Beer Garden Restaurant on the Chapala Malecon at 1:00pm staying in the water for 20 minutes, even though there was ice floating around them. Each participant (including two dogs) had sponsors. By the size of the crowd that gathered on the Malecon a lot of sponsors came out to make sure that those that they sponsored went in and stayed in for duration. After the swim, the participants went up onto The Beer Garden Patio to dry off and enjoy a hot drink.

At 2:00pm at this same location the three winning tickets were drawn from the Polar Bear Raffle that started in November 2010. Three lucky ticket purchasers split $35,000 pesos. These two events raised $208,000 pesos. This relates to 2/3 of the cost to operate the Ambulances and Clinic for a Month at Lake Side.

Thank you for your support to Cruz Roja (Red Cross) the essential service operating here at Lakeside. “As always the life you save may be your own.”
