This is the program that the net proceeds from the 2011 Loreto Calendar will help to support. Today is your last day to order your 2011 Loreto Calendar. Definitely get one or several as gifts and support a great non-profit.

We have sold 126 calendars to date! Get yours and make sure you don’t have calendar envy next year. After today, the quantities I will have printed will be set in stone and sent to the printers. I need to order the printing of these calendars in volumes to ensure we are able to purchase them as a community at a reasonable price and also be able to donate a significant portion of each sale to Eco Alianza. So far, over the past two years, we have raised over $5,000 for non-profits in Loreto. Let’s keep this traditional alive!
