Good News!

This edition of your VIP Club Newsflash is going to begin on a personal note.

San Miguel super-charity, Feed The Hungry operates 31 rural kitchens and feeds almost 4000 school children a hot meal every school day within some of the area’s most impoverished communities. It’s a herculean feat FTH has pulled off since 1984.

Your Club president wants to help raise funds and give a shot in the arm to a particular Feed The Hungry kitchen at the Las Cañas school. Like some other FTH  kitchens, Las Cañas “does not” have a long-term sponsor’s commitment.

Your Club’s president has been a journalist for over 40 years. In the past, I have read particular published essays aloud to audiences.

I can’t sing or dance. Hopefully, I might be able to entertain and even relate when sharing my stories.  LOL, even if I’m lousy, what better reason than for a good cause? Angela Peralta, February 11th, 7:00 pm. with Your president reading a collection of cherry-picked essays. I hope a portion of the membership will help me with this effort. All Proceeds go to Feed The Hungry.

Tickets go on sale, Friday, January 17th. I would be very grateful and especially honored by members who choose to attend. If members can’t attend, perhaps you can spare a $5-$10-or-a-$15-dollar-bill, or anything, and donate to this worthwhile cause at

For the last 20-years, Your Club often receives feedback. Almost all mails sent back to us have been supportive, flattering and appreciative.

We thought we’d share a touching email we recently received from long-time members of which we’d like to share:

“Due to medical issues, we are moving to Houston next week.  We have lived for 13 years in San Miguel de Allende and will miss this wonderful city.  We wanted to thank you for providing us with the lucrative VIP Card of SMA.  It has been so beneficial enabling us to enjoy numerous restaurants and services.  I hope our paths will cross in the future.”

Hasta  Luego,

Sherrilyn Van Dyke & Rodney Dye

Your Club: “Thank you, Sherrilyn & Rodney. Only the best.”
