Be Aware. The Primary School BE AWARE ENVIRONMENTAL CLUBS recently joined together for a fun outing at Forest Bay Beach.
We had 150 Club members, 6 advisors and 20 parents who enjoyed the sea, the sand, the refreshments and the camaraderie. The get-together was planned for three main reasons.

We wanted to show members how beautiful Anguilla�s beaches truly are and how unattractive they can become if not cared for properly. Forest Bay was a perfect example of both types. In some areas there were picnic leftovers, debris from boats, and glass bottles. In other areas the beach was sandy and inviting. We, of course, did our share by cleaning some of the area.

The second reason was to reward all of the Club members for becoming active, dues-paying members, for maintaining the premises of their respective schools and for assisting the Environmental Health Unit (EHU) in collecting glass bottles for their recycling programme.

Lastly, we wanted to make sure that the FUN in our motto �Environment is FUNdamental� was not just lip service.

Planning is already advanced for the second annual summer CAMP BE AWARE, this year adding swimming and life saving lessons. To raise money, CAMP BE AWARE is raffling two round trips from Anguilla to San Juan (donated by American Eagle). Tickets are US$5 each, available 10 March until the first day of camp, 10 July.

For any further information on the CLUBS or CAMP or to buy raffle tickets, contact Teacher Art at email [email protected], call or fax at 264-497-2369, If you would like to join any of the BE AWARE CLUBS you may mail checks to PO Box 959, Anguilla, BWI and declare which Club you would like to receive your dues. If you have no specific club in mind the money will be divided among the 7 CLUBS.

High Praise from a Stamp Collector. Wolfgang Weitlaner (email: [email protected]) collects stamps, but in a special way. He collects registered letters from each country, with carefully selected stamps on them. He asked me how to approach the Anguilla Post Office about his philatelic request. I pointed him at the Post Office web site (Click Here) and verified that the Post Office does take VISA credit cards. He faxed his needs to the Post Office at (264) 497 5455, and here is how Wolf describes the service:

Hi Bob!
i was receiving the envelope from Lelia Richardson - the boss. she was doing the best imaginable job. Much better than all the other post-offices. I am very very glad. Payment on credit card was superb working!!! She even has some old stuff on stock, which she will forward me....
Cheers Wolf
Now Wolf wonders if Anguilla's Travelling Post Office truck has its own cancellation. He could add a special registered letter mailed from the truck while is is delivering mail to the villages.

White Gazpacho. Chef Maurice at Leduc's Restaurant has a wonderful appetizer called "White Gazpacho", which is a chilled soup of ground almonds and garlic with grapes and grated apples. We had it last night, along with a Warm Goat Cheese salad, Twice-Roasted Crisp Duckling and Grouper Filet prepared with a tomato and olive sauce. All were excellent. The menu changes slightly on a regular basis, but for a recent menu, Click Here.
