Steve Kalar, representing SMRC, presented Betian Webb with a painting as a thank you. SMRC was the sponsoring organization for Hornet Works at Lillian Larsen School.
In collaboration with Christina Wilkinson, Betian Webb gave two days a week for two years. During lunchtime one day a week the students participated in explicit job skills training: how to introduce themselves, how to fill out job applications, how to answer interview questions. The second day they used their lunch period to gain work experience weeding the school garden, installing drip irrigation, and planting flowers. They learned to show up on time, work the entire time they were on the clock, manage themselves professionally, work as a team, and track their own payroll. While they were learning the norms of the workplace, they also learned to overcome failure, to work when they don’t feel like it, and to ask for what they wanted. Through the program, they also developed character traits of responsibility, self-confidence, perseverance, honesty, citizenship, integrity, self-discipline, and respect.
Approximately 60 students went through the program in the two years of activity.
Betian Webb has been helping start youth job skills training programs in north San Luis Obispo County for eight years. She helped found and manage the Teens at Work program of the LINK in Atascadero and helped start and currently directs the YouthWorks program at the Paso Robles Housing Authority in Oak Park.
Lillian Larsen School was honored to have her be a part of student education teaching the importance of job training skills.

The last Harvest Faire was a successful beginning and so it will continue each 3rd Friday of the month. If you missed out on the great local produce and other vendor treats, you should plan to make it to the November event. This is a joint venture of the San Miguel Chamber in collaboration with The Coffee Station in an effort to try to determine the feasibility of eventually opening a farmer's market in San Miguel. Come and give your input. If you would like to be involved as a vendor or as a part of the planning committee, or just get more information, please contact John @(805) 712-8257 or email@example.com

History Project Did you know there was a train wreck in San Miguel in 1957 that destroyed part of a well known eating place. It was across from north end of the Mission where there is now a fence perpendicular to the railroad tracks close to the location of what was the Green Parrot Cafe before it became a truck stop.
Alex Madonna Construction was moving equipment across the railroad, at what is now the Schmitz driveway, and was hit by the train. The train was carrying sugar beets and it was derailed smashing into the Green Parrot Cafe. Thought you might like to see this photo of the damaged diesel train and building.
