Casco Antiguo´s Neighborhood and Friends Association (AVACA – Asociacion de Vecinos y Amigos del Casco Antiguo) blew its first candle last night with a great party at Espacio Panama (Calle 2nda). Neighbors, friends and Casco Addicts talked about the association´s achievements during its first year (which include beach cleanups, government lobby, a successful Neighborhood Watch Program, defense of Casco`s Patrimony and more!), Casco`s future events and Avaca`s future projects.
The beautiful thing about AVACA is that it reflects Casco Viejo`s new community: its members are from all over the world: Panama, USA, Australia, England, Italy, Venezuela, Argentina, Colombia, Canada and Germany, a celebration of what Panama is, always was and really defines it the best: be diverse.
To all of AVACA`s members… happy birthday! and Congratulations!!! keep up the good work!!!
