You may remember me mentioning in THIS POST (way back in August!) that I was hoping to get involved in a new venture in our village...well it was this new Centre, called CASA DE ANIMO (THIS newspaper article describes it much better than I ever could!)
Although the Centre has been opened for a while now, the official opening by the British Consul was planned for Wednesday of this week (yesterday), and even though the elements and the National Strike were against us, it went ahead as planned.
Because of the bad weather, the ceremony itself took place outside the Centre
The local Priest blessing the Centre
The British Consul and our Mayor cutting the ribbon
Because of the torrential rain we have had this week, one of our local bar-owners had offered us his upstairs room for the celebratory drinks and buffet, rather than to have it outdoors as planned....even though we had provided our own drinks and food!
All-in-all it was a very successful if somewhat busy morning......sometimes my 'Life in the slow lane' isn't so slow at all!
I do hope the sunshine we usually have is with you this week!!!
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
