The Lake Chapala Society is hosting a Summer Fashion Show showcasing trends and attire from Cugini’s Boutique on Thursday, May 30, 3 p.m.
The Genealogy Forum will meet on Monday, April 27, 2 p.m. in the Lake Chapala Society (LCS) Sala. This month’s session will include a webinar by Legacy Family Tree called “Hookers, Crooks and Kooks: Aunt Merle Didn’t Run a Boarding House.”
Many of us want to ignore that scalawag, that counterfeiter, or that madam of our family tree, but the black sheep may prove the most interesting of all. Learn to examine clues in unusual and also common sources. Learn how they lead to locating more records. The presenter is Jana Sloan Broglin, a professional genealogist with over 35 years experience.
Marci Bowman will also give a brief presentation on using Jing – a free screen clipping application by SnagIt.
Neill James Seminar
Dr. Richard Rhoda’s talk at the Tuesday, April 21, 2 p.m. Neill James Seminar is titled “100 Years of Reforms in Mexico.” The Lake Chapala Society (LCS) presentation will focus mostly on current President Enrique Pena Nieto’s aggressive economic reform program which includes breaking up monopolies and privatizing certain petroleum activities.
During the remainder of April, the Lakeside Conservative Group is presenting the full nine-episode series, “The Men who Killed Kennedy,” at the Cinemas del Lago in Ajijic’s Bugambilias Plaza.
The Tuesday April 7, noon seminar will be chaired by Ron Mullenaux. The meeting is reserved for Lake Chapala Society (LCS) members only and features a video talk by political scientist Parag Khanna titled “Mapping the future of countries.” Many people think the lines on the map no longer matter, but in his talk Khanna proves that they do. Using maps of the past and present, he explains the root causes of border conflicts worldwide and proposes simple yet cunning solutions for each.
Supporters of Ajijic’s passion play (see story page 12) are finalizing plans for their other popular annual event, the old-time reenactment of the delightful Sunday evening fiesta in the plaza that was popular 120 years ago.
