The new Aruba Donkey Sanctuary at Bringamosa is officially open! Quite a lot of cheerful visitors to the Donkey Fair viewed the opening ceremony, which was done by the six volunteers, who started the sanctuary twenty years ago. Honorary guests Ramon and Maria Boekhoudt, Mevine Kock and Stewart Willems, Facundo Franken, Chito Paris and Johnnie Fingal cut a veggie cake and distributed it among the donkeys present as the official opening ceremony. Thus the move to Bringamosa, which offers the 130 donkeys and the 25.000 visitors a year a wonderful new location and the 20th anniversary of the sanctuary were jointly celebrated.
The Donkey Fair was a big hit: there were booths with great products, games for the children, a jumping castle and a merry-go-round. Many visitors greatly enjoyed themselves.The winners of the raffle will all be personally notified.
