GAUCÍN: Balcony of the Ronda Mountains where the Holy Child appeared to St. John of God.
The illustrious, always noble, very hospitable village of Gaucín.
In addition to the Lent concert in April we have a special concert this Saturday at 7pm in the church. The Tantanakuy choir will be visiting the village and will present their mix of European and Latin American music, supported by indigenous Latin American instruments. Google them and watch a clip to get a flavor of what they will be performing!
As many of you know PAD Gaucin has been active for many years in the Gaucín area, helping stray and street animals with our neutering program and in some cases finding them new homes.

To carry on the good work we desperately need new volunteers!!

This is a message to all members of our community who care enough to give back a little bit of their time, to make use of their special talent or to help out otherwise.
