MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

The Lake Chapala Society, A.C. 2023

Dear Lakeside Community:

As I enter my final year as President of The Lake Chapala Society, I reflect on the many accomplishments made especially during the COVID period and focus on the possibilities for this final year in my role.

• Customer Service

• Upgraded Technology

• Community Collaborations - with the greater community

• Community Visibility

• Taking Care of What We have

The Lake Chapala Society is a volunteer driven organization. We have over 300 volunteers who give of their time, talents and passion with the desire to enhance the experience of the Lakeside region. Many have looked at LCS, and fondly referred to it as a “newbies” organization. This is something I disagree with. While it is true that most Expats join LCS when they first move to Mexico and find it a great place to meet friends, engage in activities that tie into their interests and learn how to best settle into a new community and culture, it is so much more than that. Open Circle presenter, David Truly, makes the observation that people used to come to the area for the culture that is here. His observation in recent years is he sees more and more people coming here and bringing their culture with them, trying to force fit it into their new surroundings. Lake Chapala Society is uniquely positioned to bring all the diverse communities and groups together with a goal of a long term support for our common goals.

Thinking of LCS as just a newbies group, in my opinion makes for an awkward settlement process. Expats living here at Lakeside have been doing so for many decades. The richness of the culture that is here is open and welcoming to those who want to come, explore, and build a new lifestyle to embrace for the rest of your life. Lake Chapala Society is not just for newbies. It truly has many programs, activities and events that can enrich the community we all share. This is an organization you should join for life.

LCS features over 100 activities that take place in our lush gardens and the buildings that make up our campus. Through this directory you will find some information on some of these programs. Reviewing our monthly Conecciones magazine you will learn lots more, and on our website you will fund current and back issues with the most current information and valuable info.

In this letter I offer these key points that are imperative priorities to take us where we need to go. At our 2022 Annual General Meeting, held yearly in March, I charged our Board of Directors and key folks with focusing like a laser on these 5 priorities.

For the final year as President I want to greatly increase the focus on these pillars. We still have a lot of work to do in each of these areas and we need people who will commit to these priorities, roll up their sleeves and help move us forward on each of these points.

One of the best ways to get established in the community is by becoming a volunteer. If you have been here for a while, get further engaged. In particular we are looking for volunteers who love to serve others and who will commit to making a difference in the overall community.

Please also review our LCS 2.0 strategic plan. This can be found on our website under - about us - governance and click on the link to LCS 2.0 - https://lakechapalasociety.com/public/ governance.php

May 2023 be a year that opens great possibilities for our organization, our community and all those we touch.

Best Wishes

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 local communities. 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 ’60s, the headquarters was enlarged, and weekly movies were shown to children. During the ‘70s, 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.).

In 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.

In 1954, Neill James started the Children’s Art Program, and it has helped thousands of Mexican children develop their creative talents, producing many well-known local artists and making Ajijic a center for art. The tradition of Ajijic as an art colony lives on through these children. Some of their parents attended the original program established by Neill James.

Free Art Classes for all Children

Sometimes over 80 children attend the program each Saturday rain or shine. The classes are free and open to all children aged 3 to 18. The program has flourished with the support of LCS and the many dedicated volunteers.

The Business of Art

To teach the children about the business of art, their artwork is used to make greeting cards for all occasions. These are sold at LCS. Each child artist earns a portion of the sale. Some youth from the program have pursued formal art education with help from the LCS. Some have illustrated books, others have been commissioned to paint murals and unique artwork.

Summer Art Camp

Since 2013 CAP holds a week long Summer Art Camp at LCS, free to all children. Camp activities include: papel maché, jewelry, mosaics, drawing, painting with acrylics, oils and watercolors, as well as a special workshop for children aged 6 and under. Annually the program attracts over 125 participants.

Children’s Art Patio Mural

They also volunteer every Saturday to teach the children. The mural celebrates six decades of the CAP. LCS thanks ASA for its contribution to this project.

Legacy Art Collection

In 2012, the Legacy Art Collection was placed in the care of LCS. This collection belongs to the people of Ajijic and dates back to the 1950’s when Neill James started CAP. Almost 400 framed pieces have been catalogued in a database. The cataloguing of thousands more pieces of art continues.
