John Ozzello Memorial Food Bank
There are many Bucerias community fundraisers, and many of us wonder what happens to the monies, or how much was made at the fundraisers and the totals for the season. Transparency is important for a non profit organization. Here are the season’s results from one amazing gal and her wonderful husband who coordinate all of the events and keeps everything organized and moving; Randy and Sandi Nystrom. AND of course everyone who is involved! It’s a ton of work, and a huge team effort, and we love you for all that you do! Feeding hungry people is important for physical health, as well as mental and emotional health and well being. Thank YOU!!!

Daylight Saving Time Starts April 6th in Mexico
Except for Sonora and 12 Mexico-USA border municipalities, will begin DST on April 6 and ending a week earlier on October 26.
Clocks in areas that follow DST in the USA & Canada (including some areas in Mexico) will be returned to Standard Time on November 2, 2014.
The areas in Mexico that observe USA DST rules are the state of Sonora and the 12 border municipalities of Tijuana, Ensenada, Mexicali, Tecate, Ciudad Juarez, Ojinaga, Ciudad Acuña, Piedras Negras, Anahuac, Nuevo Laredo, Reynosa, and Matamoros. There are also some remote villages that do not change their clocks.
In Mexico, Daylight Saving Time is known as the “horario de verano” (summer schedule). It has been observed since 1996 throughout most of the country. The four weeks in the spring before Daylight Saving Time begins in Mexico, and one week in the fall after Daylight Saving Time ends in Mexico, makes Mexico one hour out of sync with the corresponding US and Canadian time zones.
Also keep in mind when traveling past Lo de Marcos, (pueblo past San Pancho) the time changes to one hour earlier! This is good to remember when making your Mexico travel plans to visit Puerto Vallarta and farther north on the Riviera Nayarit.
The Bucerias Art Walk, hosted by the Bucerias Art Walk Plaza is still going on tonight and every Thursday evening in April. Why not get out and about to chat with the Bucerias Art Gallery owners and local artists? They offer wine and other tasty beverages along with snacks. its a fun way to meet new people and see old friends.
The last Art Walk of this Season will be on April 24th. Support your local Bucerias Art Galleries, like
Jan Marie Boutique, Jan Marie Boutique and Talavara, (Next to Mark’s) and the Bucerias Art Gallery and Studio.

Bucerias Restaurants and Bucerias Entertainment
Mark’s Bar and Grill
Back by popular demand, Mark’s will be presenting Doug Robinson and his Jazz Trio this Saturday April 5th at 7.30pm.Original and rearranged Classic Jazz pieces. A fabulous night of music and food in an intimate setting.
A note from Doug Robinson :
“From Erroll Garner to Bill Evans and Chick Corea, the piano trio has emerged as one of the most enduring formats for jazz. It’s flexible enough so that when you get the right three players, the results can range from intimate to powerful and downright funky, sometimes within the same song.
I’m a composer and piano player and my new trio with Roberto Falcon on bass and Jesus Estrada on drums is the best small ensemble I’ve played with since moving to Mexico almost nine years ago. If you happened to catch my larger group (Iguanas Ranas) at the recent San Pancho Music Festival, the guys in this trio are actually the core rhythm section of that band. There’s no cover, just great food and music in a lovely environment. We’ll be playing some beautiful original compositions, plus some fun arrangements of more familiar pieces.” See you at Marks!
