The last trip - July 2017
Last week I sent this note out to all the people I know who are interested in coming to El Salvador:
I wanted to contact all of you to let you know that we are recruiting now for the final Compadres y Comadres trip to take place July, 2017
If you know of other people who are interested, please let me know. I hope to have the group formed up and first deposits in by October 2016
This will be the final trip that I will facilitate, so this is a good opportunity to go and visit a wonderful country and meet amazing people.
I am now using my own e-mail address for correspondence, if you would like me to add you to the 2017 list please let me know. It would be good to have a different address that I can use over the summer. I would like to plan an early orientation session, maybe even during the summer so the group can get to know each other. One major theme for me would be to find out why you want to go to El Salvador. Knowing this will help Rene and I plan the trip.
I have had a chance to talk to a few of you on the phone about the trip and the shift to 2017. If a call would help, please call me on my cell at 613-218-9615, or e-mail me with your questions.
This will certainly be the last trip I organize as part of Compadres y Comadres. I really hope it leads to other opportunities in El Salvador, but we will have to see. I hope to be very mindful of the preparation we need to do as a group for the 2017 trip and I would like to arrange secondary trips to Guatemala for those who have the flexibility to stay on. If you are reading this and want to come with us please send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
