PHILO'S NOTES, April 15, 2013
Summer is almost here and this month the
weather has been great. It has been absolutely beautiful. I'm
keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for a great summer.
And yes, the off season is starting
and we are still open and intend to be open all summer. Music will
still be happening every Thursday,
Friday and Saturday nights here at Philo's.
What an incredible gathering! Our benefit for
Maria's mom Lupe Chavez was a huge success. We raised $36,360
pesos. The money will help but the real benefit will be the showing of
support from the community for our beautiful Lupe. Both Maria and her
mom are overwhelmed by the show of support and for your generous
donations. Over 200 people came to the benefit and about 30 musicians
showed up to play. It was wonderful.
Thank you Mandy and the Britannia
Pub and thank you everyone for your participation and for helping
make this such a great event.
And tonight Monday the 15 of April will be the
grand finale for our Loosie
Goosie semi acoustic Jam Sessions. Music
starts at 7:30 pm. Bring your instruments.
you Willem for you help
through out the year.
For those of you who will be here on this Sunday May 5th, the
International Festival of Altruism will
be taking place again this year at the Marriott Hotel in Puerto Vallarta.
It is important to us because it is one of our best sources of money for
our own Friendship Club, now called the "Amigos Medical Assistance
Program," which is my favorite local charity. 100 percent of the
money collected goes to 24 different charities and the "Amigos
Medical Assistance Program" is one of them. Also, 100% of
the money collected for our Amigos Medical Assistance Program goes for
medical expenses and health programs for our community.
The International Festival
of Altruism is an incredible cultural and gastronomic show.
This year 37 of the very best restaurants in
Puerto Vallarta will have "all you can eat booths" presenting
their special meals. The candy booths and dessert booths alone are worth
the cost of the ticket. 300 pesos for an advance ticket gets you in the
door and everything from then on is free. 400 pesos at the door the day
of the event. And... every year they keep out doing themselves with food
and entertainment. It is a very special event and not to be missed. You
can come by Philo's anytime and get tickets. Or call Lori Wilson at 329

Here is a similar article from Banderas News.
This from my friend Lori Wilson at amigosdelacruz.org
The stories are still flying, including reports of recent
vehicle confiscations in Mazatlan. Because this issue is so complex, with
stories changing almost daily, I am not going to try to stay on top of
posting the numerous and various reports from different websites. Here is
an article entitled;
Residente Permanente’s Temporary Import Permit Cars Confiscated
Please note that none of these stories are absolute. I fear that some of
us are panicking about what to do with our foreign plated autos. If we
stay as informed as we can and use good common sense, I suspect that
we’ll come out of it just fine.
have another La Cruz Days Parade
coming up soon. This year's parade will be held on the evening of
Thursday, April 25th. The parade is the beginning of a 9 day
event to celebrate our Pueblo's patron saint. If you participated last
year you probably remember how much fun everyone had marching through
town, proudly holding their Amigos signs representing our different
programs and committees. This
year we are hoping to get a flatbed truck big enough accommodate Philo
and the Mexican Shuffle band. Should be a blast. Come join us.

Don't worry be hippy,
To be a true "Hippie" it matters not your age, your creed or
color. It matters not if your hair is long or how you dress. What
matters is what is in your heart and soul, and to use that to help make
the world a better place for future generations. If we just all do our
part, no matter how small, just maybe we can reach our goal of Peace and
Laughter is the best tranquilizer with no side effects, so please take
