        Glancing Back,
Remembering Our Heritage
                The   San Miguel History Project and                       this webpage are currently the                             major projects of the 
San Miguel Resource Connection.       
                     This month we share again an article about the first newspapers in San Miguel.  I thought it was appropriate because it ends with an interesting article about water rights and is a reminder that the current water issue and political scene is not a new one.  It's been here as least since 1886
.   Enjoy!  

                             KNOW ITS  ORGANIZATIONS
Check out the following opportunities to get involved

              Information from a new organization:  Common Ground

San Miguel Community 
Services District
San Miguel Community Services District (SMCSD) is a public entity  committed to serving the community with water, sewer, fire, and lighting services. 
 Board  regularly meets on the 4th Thursday of the month at 7 PM.  
    Both the board and staff appreciate community member's 
        attendance at their meetings  on a regular basis.  The CSD and
          its board still face some serious water and sewer treatment 
`        issues and the community needs be knowledgeable and involved.  
         If you can't attend meetings, reading  the minutes from the
           meetings will be helpful.  You can call the CSD office to request
           a copy be emailed to you or view on their  website. 
        Also,  please know that an involved citizen has been recording   
          board meetings after receiving permission required to do so. The idea 
        was that people who can't make it to the meetings can still keep up         
          The videos are all on a YouTube channel called San Miguel Public                     Meetings- a link is below.

Native Daughters meet the second Wednesday of each month at 7 pm at the Sr. Citizen Center.    If you were born in California, come and see what they're doing.

The primary mission of the  
Native Sons of the 
Golden West is to preserve the spirit of the “Days of’ 49” and the history of California. But the Native Sons of the Golden West are much more than that. The events, functions, and activities that our Order participates in are as varied and diverse as our great state and those who call it home.  Requirements for membership are that you were born in California.
Your involvement can be as simple as helping collect tickets at a dinner, participating in one of the many events held by your parlor or perhaps helping carry the Native Son Flag in a parade. You can play a larger part if you so desire and take a leadership role such as filling an officer’s position or serving on a committee. No matter what level of participation you choose, one thing is certain: your involvement will be welcomed by your par­lor and for you as a member it will be the start of a fulfilling and enriching experience for years to come.
Major activities include:  Monthly meetings, participation in parades,  Flag day and Admissions Day events, Charities for children's health, Historical Preservation, Historical dedications, school essay contests, high school scholarships.
