    San Miguel Neighborhood Watch Meeting 

    If you live in or around San Miguel and have any concerns about safety or crime in your neighborhood, this is a meeting you should attend.

     The meeting is Monday, August 14,  at 6:30 pm at 

    Lillian Larsen Elementary School Gymnasium

    1601 L  St.

    There is already a large group involved in neighborhood watch in San Miguel, but there is strength in numbers and by keeping your eyes and ears open and letting others know what is going on, you can contribute to reducing crime and improving safety in our community. 

    Come to the meeting to learn about what is already happening  and how together we can make San Miguel a safer place to live, work, and play.

    SLO County Sheriff Dept. personnel will be available to answer questions and offer suggestions.


       San Miguel Library, the place to be        this summer!
    Lots of exciting things are happening at the Library this summer.   Check out the BENTO Display through August.  Bento boxes are lunch boxes for adults and children  that can be very creative designs.  See a variety of designs at the library. 
    Be sure to get your kids involved in the children program and participate in the adult summer program as well.  Fun for all.  More information available on library page.


    San Miguel “Old Timers Picnic”  

         August 27

    Every year the San Miguel Lions Club  honors the Paso Robles Pioneer Day Royalty in the San Miguel Park.  They also acknowledge the “old timers” of the area.  In fact, if you are 80 or older, your dinner is FREE.

    Everyone is invited to enjoy a BBQ consisting of ½ chicken, beans, bread, & salad—--all for $12.

    This event has been taking place every year for as long as I can remember.  We have been assured that the park area needed will be available in plenty of time for the event to take place.

    Come join the fun:

    Sunday, Aug. 27 from noon to 5 at San Miguel Park,  K St. at 12th.

    Glancing Back,
    Remembering Our Heritage
    The San Miguel Resource Connection has taken on the San Miguel History Project and this webpage as its major projects.  It is intended to preserve as much of the San Miguel History as possible and share in a way to encourage others to take an interest and understand the rich heritage of the community.       *****

    This month we share  a new piece of public art that is a part of the San Miguel Resource Connection's History Project.   
     Be sure to use zoom tools (+) at bottom of document to make print larger and easier to read.

     2017 San Miguel Lynda Stamp Community Scholarship Recipient 

    Congratulations  to Imelda Aguilar for being awarded the Lynda Stamp Community Scholarship for 2017.  She graduated from Lillian Larsen Elementary school followed by Paso Robles High School.  Next she will be attending  California State University, Stanislaus , where her pursuit is a degree in Psychology with a minor in Spanish.

    While at Paso Robles High School  she was involved in the AVID program and  in Link Crew.   Through these programs she helped incoming freshmen, especially those with English as their second language.  She helped them adjust to high school and was that someone to turn to for help and direction.  Of her required 18 hours of community service required, she completed 209.   At the same time she was learning how much she enjoys helping others.  This was a big factor in her career choice.

    The Lynda Stamps Community Scholarship Committee had many applicants for the award, but was very pleased to present the 2017 award to Imelda.  The photo is of Imelda receiving her award. 

     The San Miguel Lynda Stamp Scholarship Committee would like to thank you for your support and generosity.  The willingness to give in this community is greatly appreciated.  If more funds are received than needed for one scholarship perhaps we can offer two scholarships next time.  We certainly have more qualified applicants.  Please help spread the word of this scholarship so we can help and encourage other upcoming PRHS seniors who graduated from Lillian Larsen (with at least 4 years attendance) by awarding the Lynda Stamps Community Scholarship.  Contact Susan Johnson , if you’d like to donate or become a committee member. 

    It is truly remarkable when a community can come together to provide such an amazing opportunity for our students.  Post-secondary education and training is more important now than it has ever been and we are truly blessed to have supportive community members like you to give our students the “pat on the back” they need to encourage them to do what so few are doing. 

    Thank you for helping to make a big difference in the lives of our youth.
