SPRCS students and staff receive sweet treats


Long time island visitors Debbie and Larry Heimgartner brought sweet treats once again to the students and staff of the San Pedro Roman Catholic School (SPRCS) on Monday, October 29th. The Heimgartners, who have been doing this activity for years, were once again joined by Manelly’s Ice Cream Shop in distributing 1,000 paletas (popsicles) in the school.
Teachers and students received their strawberry and chocolate paletas with big smiles and much gratitude. Debbie and Larry were happy to be back on the island, visiting the students and sharing the treats. “We love the island and giving back to the community is a good way to show students that we need to be kind with each other,” said Larry. The Heimgartners have been visiting Ambergris Caye for many years and they are always looking for ways to contribute to the island community that has always provided them with great hospitality.

The management and students of SPRCS thank the Heimgartners and Manelly’s Ice Cream Shop for their generosity and love for their school.
