Bubba, the LCS does not claim to be a group of experts. They can and do offer, for about 40.00 USDa year for a family, as far as I know the only lakeside “post life’ planning program, and a library with over 25,000 books, videos, talking books from the LOC, a hearing aid checking, repairing and sales person, a optometrist who checks eyes, fixes and sells glasses, blood pressure checking, diabetic testing, bone density checking, various other lectures and seminars, a service that carries your mail to the NOB for mailing, a central place where many of the lakeside organizations can sell tickets, inclusion in a directory where you can list your phone number, address and Email, U.S. Consular monthly visits, Spanish lessons, meeting of many groups such as The Computer Club, Ham Radio Club, Poetry Group, Great Books Group, etc. LCS also supports youth education programs. They support The Ed. Wilkes Center which is in a separate building. It offers Mexicans children and adults classes in various subjects including English, social activities for Mexicans and a large library of books in Spanish primarily for children books but with a good number of adult books. They also support a library and education branch in Jocotepec. Like I said they are not experts nor are they perfect but they are a great number of people who volunteer their time to try to make this a better place.
