LCS 2.0





COVER BY OSCAR ORLANDO IBARRA LOPEZ This precocious artist and businessman got his start at age 8 by selling pencil drawings to his classmates for one peso. Art classes at the Chapala Train Station fueled his interest but Orlando credits enrolling in the LCS Children’s Art Program for giving him the art training and discipline he needed to pursue his passion to become an artist.

The newest rising star in the Lakeside art scene. As a graduate of the LCS Children’s Art Program, this Chapala native joins a long legacy of many renowned artists and graduates of the program, such as Javier Zaragoza and Jesus Lopez Vega, whose paintings and murals hang in public buildings and villages throughout the region. Accomplished beyond his 20 years, Orlando’s watercolor and oil paintings have been featured in art exhibits throughout the area and he has won numerous awards.



This Graph shows with the blue bars what the budget numbers were for 2020. The red bars show what the actuals through November were. This demonstrates how far off many categories were as a result of the pandemic. We are very appreciative of our donors who stepped up and made up the difference to keep the organization open.






We have recruited over 80 volunteers who are mobilized and ready to reach out to members, especially those who live alone, have no family in the area and want to be contacted on a daily basis. This service has now been extended to the community at large.

This graph shows our budgeted expenses for 2020. When the year closes we will have available the actual numbers for income and expenses for the year and they will be available at the Annual General Meeting.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow We have come so far, and yet, there is still work to be done. Yesterday When the history of 2020 is written, it will be interesting to see how the year is remembered – it has certainly been one of the most challenging and uncertain periods of our lives. At the Lake Chapala Society, we, like everyone else, have needed to adapt, pivot and respond to rapidly changing circumstances and emerging needs and conditions. There are those that have adapted to this change and grown through it, and others who resist it. The changes were not dictated by us, but by a pandemic that may for many go down in history as the worse time of our lives. When I look at the pre-Covid times, I reflect on the tremendous work of the task force members of our Long-Range Plan, LCS 2.0. We had planned for our best ever Annual General Meeting where we would have kicked off this ten-year plan. The plan is filled with stretch goals and building collaborations in the community. This plan is still very much alive and will continue to be our guiding north star. But modifications had to be made. Over the LCS 65-year history we have played an intricate role in the community. We have developed programs that can enrich the many lives here at Lakeside. We had been very much on track to move these efforts forward, when this pandemic stepped in the way. However, groups of volunteers continue to work to right the ship and get us on course. Today While 2020 has been a challenging time, we have emerged through it, safely, stronger, and we are moving towards the other end. We know that 2021 will still be a challenging year for us, but we have the fortitude to continue on the path, because it is the right way to go. Today, through the efforts of our dedicated volunteers and a handful of staff, we have reopened programs, we have taken some programs online and we have continued to develop relationships with our community leaders, always serving as an important voice at the table. We have taken positive steps toward being a stronger organization that continues to enrich the lives we impact. It is in challenging times that organizations such as ours become more important in the community. We have influenced several new programs and are working on others for the future. It is through tough times that the human resiliency shines. Here at Lakeside, we have not only seen, but been a part of a community that steps up and takes action in a time of need. Members of our Board of Directors have worked with other community leaders to develop the Food Bank Lakeside, Apollo 2020 which helps local small businesses, one

of our board members also serves as the President of the Cruz Roja and we have developed our own Reaching Out Program. Across the community people have stepped up to make a difference. At LCS the challenges of the year have been met by our volunteers and staff coming together to display great flexibility and responsiveness. LCS’s greatest asset is the generous and caring people who are our members, our donors, our volunteers and staff. There were moments in 2020 where we had to look at all options, possibly even selling some or all of our property to make ends meet. There was the real possibility that the organization, like others may have to close. Through the year, our supporters rose to the occasion and filled the gap with donations that could not only keep us going but make us stronger. Tomorrow We look forward to restarting our English as a Second Language classes for the 500 students whose lives are positively impacted by these classes. We continue to provide Student Aid to those seeking to advance their career. We are anxious to get our Spanish language Book Library open where students can do their homework in a quiet setting. Our volunteers and talented local artists are very much looking forward to restarting the Children’s Art Program when it is safer to do so. We are working on a much-needed Emergency Preparedness Program that will help Expats organize their thoughts and documents for end-of-life planning or planning for unexpected emergencies. We anticipate that this will be in collaboration with the Cruz Roja Vial of Life program. One of the challenges in our office that impacts customer service is the very outdated computers and computer programs that we have. These programs were largely chosen because they were cheap, but we are forcing them to do things that they were not designed to do. Also, the hardware and software are very outdated and largely not supported any more. We are looking for funds that will allow us to update these systems and offer a much more user-friendly experience. We all look forward to a day when a new sense of normalcy will come into play and we can once again enjoy all that LCS has to offer. We hope that you will consider joining us as a volunteer, an active member or a donor that is committed to continuing the legacy. Steve Balfour President

BRIEF HISTORY OF LCS In early 1955 a small group of Expats formed a society inviting all foreign residents of Chapala to join. “The Chapala Society”, located in Chapala, was intended to benefit both foreign and the local community. During the first meeting, 21 attendees formed two committees: “Mosquito Control” and “Information Service”. A Children’s Reading Room (biblioteca) and a lending library for members were created in the first year, together with an information office. The following year English and art classes were added. In the ‘60’s, the headquarters was enlarged and weekly movies were shown to children. During the ‘70´s, the lending library moved to a new location and added “Talking Books” to the collection. In 1983 Neill James agreed to rent the front portion of her property in Ajijic to the Society, where it remains to this day. The name was then changed to The Lake Chapala Society (LCS). By the end of ’91, the LCS charter was legalized, thus converting the society into a legitimate non-profit (A.C.). Neill died in 1994 when she was almost 100 During 1992, LCS established an administrative office with mail service to the U.S., a periodical library was set up, and a formal Student Aid Program started. A free blood pressure service was established and the first celebrations of Canada Day/Independence Day were hosted on the grounds. The U.S. Consulate began monthly visits.
