VIP Club participating restaurant, Pescau, received some of what could be miscued publicity recently. Fast spreading rumor, part fact, had a big time crime figure taking a bust in a raid at a popular San Miguel seafood restaurant! Now what restaurant was that? Some news organizations reported it was Pescau, flattering to a degree but not true. The cartel guys were arrested someplace else. The only thing getting busted at Pescau are the seafood shells!

San Miguel residents have worn many nations' uniforms. A group of caring veterans spearheaded by VIP Club member and Vietnam Veteran, Paul Dickson, have created a dignified way to honor the fallen, Below, in their words is what's being dedicated:

"Veterans, Family and Friends Memorial Plaque Dedication

There are residents of San Miguel de Allende, Nationals included, who have served in armed conflict, plus those that have not necessarily served, but included in both groups there are people that have had loss of family members and friends in theaters of conflict and have no place to pay homage or reflect on their loss.

Therefore, a group of ex-Veterans, who call San Miguel de Allende home, are having a plaque manufactured and installed in a sanctuary that can be visited by the public at large and be used as a ceremonial site, at least one day a year to honour those who served and those who were lost. It could also be used to commemorate other specific occasions.

The Dedication Ceremony, 11th November, 2014 at 11.00am, St Paul's with the ceremony commencing at 10.30am. This ceremony and/or the site are not to glorify war, victory or loss, but to act as a solemn reminder of the memory of those who served and for those who paid the ultimate price."

VIP Club member Hans Brouwers has some attractive nearby seaside accommodations to rent discounted. Read all about them here:
