We also had a report from Dr. Francisco Corrales, archeologist for the National Museum who sent his Archeological findings and recommendations.
We departed from this third meeting with specific assignments for discovery, and for raising $300 for the documentation for the association. We are to meet Monday evening, the 28th of June for a re-grouping with Vincent and Scott, even more members of the community and hopefully Dr. Corrales and the new mayoral candidate, Luis Centera from Palmar Norte.
