       We've been on the road a spell yet Your Club remained active and ambitious from afar. We are fielding a host of inquiries from local businesses wishing to affiliate themselves with Your Club. Look for, during the forthcoming season, for new and great deals offered the membership by both eager and generous businesses desiring our members patronage.

     We'd like to remind our esteemed members about an aspect of the Club. Each of you should have received a VIP Club Welcome when, either first joining, or when renewing your membership. We'd like to remind the membership that up to four people in your party are entitled to the discount when in the party of the card holder as long as all ordered was put on the same bill. There have been some issues in restaurants where as members might not understand the rules. All restaurants have agreed and contracted to the rules stated. If there are more than four of you in a party, discuss it with the manager beforehand, many local restaurant owners say, "The more the merrier" yet do know others and their employees adhere to the four person rule. Also, try to provide the card when you ask for your bill which saves the server a trip back to the register. Thank you!

***Some good hearted local folk have come to the aid of a well-known, local workman who boasted an incredible work ethic and a sterling reputation! Seems Issac was severely burned a couple of weeks ago and his life was hanging by a thread. Yet severe burns take time and professional attention. Issac remains hospitalized. Many generous sanmiguelenses have chipped in but additional care and needs are required and bills are adding up! Perhaps some of you already know of Issac's valiant fight! He's still in need of a helping hand.

El Pegaso

Mucho Amable at Manantial

Look for Hank's in San Luis Potosi in early 2017!

Congrats to Luis and Laura Mondragon on the birth of their beautiful daughter Lia.
