Tuesday, Apr.  26 – How Gringos Communicate in Boquete.  We’ll talk about the systems we’ve developed to keep ourselves informed in English. Penny Barrett will speak about News.Boquete (it’s history, terms of usage, and usefulness); Bud Huber and Marcelyn Jandreau will tell us about Chiriqui.Life, the new discussion forum they host; Fran Hogan will talk about her Boquete News facebook; and Penny Ripple will apprise us of other useful internet discussion groups that exist for Panama. Wrapping it all up will be Kent McNaughton talking about the different types of email systems, their costs and capabilities.
Tuesday, May 3 – Who Ya Gonna Call???  Need help getting your utilities hooked up, or getting a drivers license, or finding a plumber, or getting transportation somewhere, or maybe just some translation services? Three accomplished, bi-lingual Panamanian ladies will take the stage to tell us about their services. Speaking will be Gloria Cruz (Boquete Services), Geovanna Caballero (Ask Geovanna), Ford Hamberger (Call Ford), and Lorena Pitti (Boquete Bilingual Services). They each have their special talents and offerings.
Tuesday, May 10 – Hospice presents “Being Prepared”. Do you know the legalities in Panama if you were to die or become ill and unable to make very important medical decisions for yourself?  Laws you're familiar with in your home country do not apply! Did you know that you must have enough cash on hand to pay a doctor to pronounce someone dead and to have the mortuary pick you up? No credit cards.  No IOUs.  What will you do if you're hospitalized in an emergency and can't express what medical treatment you want?  And who can legally enter your home to feed your pets if you can't? What's your legal marital status?  What about wills?  There's a lot we ASSUME we know but we don't.
Tuesday, May 17 – Mike Potts presents “The Rhythm of Life”.  Scientific research indicates that participation in community drumming has a significant positive impact on your health. Mike Potts, biologist and percussionist, will tell you how you can lower your blood pressure, boost your immune system, inspire creativity and more in a way that is easy and fun. Like meditation, community drumming is a path to better health and well-being, but can also be an enjoyable social event.  No cash outlay, training or previous experience is required to participate in this rewarding activity. There will be visuals and audience participation however, sadly, no naked dancing.
Tuesday, May 24 – Jose Arias will speak his business Memorial Group which owns a private cemetery a new funeral home and his brand new crematorium in David.
Tuesday, May 31 Mikkel Moller on Entrepreneurship in Panama. Is there an urge to start a business in Panama - ready to do more than just retire (reading, watching TV or playing games) - does your mate see more for you? Come learn about skills and the background needed - for what it takes to be an Entrepreneur. Maybe you are the next creative genius waiting in the wings.
