Buying with Crypto Currency – Any Interest?
Those who are keeping up with it, especially in the past month or two, know that there are hundreds of versions of crypto currency out there and their values are skyrocketing. I am not a financial adviser by any means, but I have had a couple of inquiries regarding the purchase of properties with BitCoin’ or the like. My apprehension has always been how is it that you escrow funds?

That, it seems, is no longer an issue with a bitcoin escrow service.

If the above describes you, (you may be interested in buying or selling with crypto currency please hit ‘reply’ and tell me).

Vegas Electric under new Ownership and Management!

In April 2020 Shelli Heil, CFO of Vegas Electric since 2015, became CEO of the Roatan based energy solutions company that provides renewable and traditional energy solutions for residential, commercial, and industrial customers. She assumed the role following the passing of Charles George, the company’s founder. Shelli is leveraging her 20+ years of global experience focused on organizational strategy, technology, and operational improvement to strengthen the organization.

A firm believer in servant leadership, the power of change and the value of team building, Shelli chose to resign from her former high level position in Chicago, IL, and move to Roatan, where she is now a full time resident in First Bight.

Under her leadership, the Vegas Electric team continues to deliver on its commitment to quality and value in accordance with the client’s needs, expectations and budget.

Old County fire truck bound for Honduras!

Thank you to Canada’s Sunrise Rotary Club for their support to help our fire department in Roatan, Honduras. A former County of Grande Prairie fire truck is bound for our island. The Sunrise Rotary Club has been helping out Honduras for 3 years. This will be the second fire truck that has been donated.

Without these imperative donations, our communities would not have the facilities to look after our citizens. Our gratitude goes out to this group of thoughtful, committed citizens that are making great changes in the world.
