Panama U.S. Navy League next event

Panama U.S. Navy League next event:

Next Second Tuesday Dinner -- A Special Subject

Navy League is known for the quality of our speakers and their subjects. We also take on subjects with special significance and next month's dinner is one of those.

While we enjoy the many things Panama offers residents, there comes a time when a friend reaches out to ask about how to handle a serious illness. Our next dinner features Joyce Perrin, a former nurse (like a US Marine, are they ever former?) who co-founded Panama Hospice and Respite.

Knowing what options are available and what they enable, may help someone you care about in the future. We all understand the power of the relationships we establish here. We think this is one to take note of.

Joyce will be giving a short presentation followed by Q & A.

Please do plan on joining us.

Menu to be announced, and yes, we listened to the feedback from our last dinner.

Date: June 10
Time: 7:00pm
Place. Le Meridien Hotel
Price: $30 including glass of wine

Please do RSVP by noon, Monday, June 9th.

Thanks for your support.

Kind regards,

Hunter Schultz

United Airlines will fly nonstop between Denver International Airport and Panama City, Panama

Denver & CO people take note, thanks to my daughter Shawna who lives in Denver for the following news:

United Airlines will fly nonstop between Denver International Airport and Panama City, officials announced Wednesday.

Denver leaders have long had their sights set on the Central American city for a nonstop flight, seeing it as a gateway to destinations across Latin America.

The service will begin Dec. 3, subject to government approval. Service will be offered daily November through August and five times weekly in September and October.

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, DIA manager Kim Day and United officials announced the new destination at a news conference Wednesday on the steps of the City & County Building.

Hickenlooper visited Panama City last year to promote commerce between the two cities. Wednesday, he said the city will be an important hub for international commerce, especially when the expansion of the Panama Canal is finished.

"It will be a major source of commerce, and it's incredibly important for Denver to be connected there," Hickenlooper said.

The Panama Canal serves as an important trade route connecting the Pacific Ocean with the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean, but its relevance to the global oil trade diminished over the years because of changing trade patterns and the fact that many modern tankers are too large to travel through it, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

United's new flights will connect at Panama City’s Tocumen International Airport to various other points in Central and South America on United and its strategic partner, Copa Airlines.

“Following the success of our Denver-Tokyo flight, our new service to Panama City will link our Denver business and leisure travelers to the business and finance capital of Central America and open the door to other new, international destinations through our partner airlines,” said Steve Jaquith, United’s managing director of its Denver hub.
