Question? How do you get your cel phone back if you lose it? If someone finds it, they can't call you, because they have your phone! Who knows if the finder is sharp enough to go into your phone book and start calling people at random, to see if they recognize your phone #? Some have locks on their phone or the account won't have any minutes left. Then consider language barriers. More than likely most will have to just write it off. Yet, hold on here, Your VIP Club has a way to help get your phone back to you! We have a free gift for members! We will place an ID on your phone with your email address on it so the "finder" can contact you. I will be at Harry's Restaurant between the hours of 1 and 3 pm on Thursday. Stop by and I will make a custom ID to place on your phone. This is just a way of Your VIP Club saying thank you for your valued support. If members can't make it, get back to us, and we can make arrangements to get you your phone ID.

For VIP Club members who use propane cylinders rather than tanks Your Club now has discount coupons available when using VIP Club participating gas provider, Providencia, your reliable and honest gas provider already offering VIP Club members 40 centavos off each liter they purchase for their tanks. Contact us back here so we can provide you the coupons.

VIP Club member, Don Connolly desires members to know about a special play reading that will take place at St Paul's beginning March 14. See attachment below.

Friends of Don Clay: Many know and deeply care for Don Clay who was afflicted by a stroke a couple of years back. Don is still stricken and under the care Los Labradores, on the road to Dolores. Don could use some company. If you don't have a vehicle there are shuttles that will take you out and back. For more info call Alejandra at cel 101-0201 or Vanessa 154-8182. Don still can't speak and it's a good idea to bring a friend. Don't forget your friends so they don't forget you.

Modern Iconography Class Beginning April 16 Monday

No artistic experience is necessary for the iconography classes in egg tempera. The course is a meditation as well as a painting class. It is an introduction to the practice and theory of traditional icon writing, a multi-step process, leading form dark to light, rough to refined and chaos to order. Egg Tempera is not an easy medium, what I am offering is an experience of the paint in a quiet environment to have it in. The main goal of the study is to cultivate a clear and conscious image that becomes a window to the divine, an image reflecting our thoughts of God and ourselves in the world. The process of icon painting moves us beyond the act of painting, eventually revealing our understanding and limits of self.
