One last Vine before we greet 2016. Holiday and New Year's Blessings to all. This year has seen our Community grow with new ferias, wonderful families settling here, and lots of cultural additions.

Several people have asked what happened to Scotia Bank in PZ. There are no signs on the old bank ... but they have moved 2 blocks west (toward Dominical) into a new building on the left side of the street, past Pali.
