As I mentioned here in Puerto Penasco, we have a great deal of events taking place in Spring. This weekend we just finished the Sandstorm 300 which is put on by Desert Racers and brought in many off road racers. The start in town and race through the desert and come back in north of the city. It is very much a family event and brings excitement to town.
The Red Cross also received a new ambulance thanks to the efforts of the Rotary Club of Puerto Penasco. The keys were presents last week by Oscar Palacio. We have several civic groups here in town such as the Masonic Lodge, Lions, American Legion and Rotary. Each one brings a great deal of good to the city. Thanks to one lodge we are now in the process of finishing our dialysis center. I will touch on them more after I see what all the need.
