    Lillian Larsen School Community Garden 
    gratefully received a donation from Steve Nino, developer of "Jazzy Town", a new development on 14th St.  The school community
    garden was started several years ago by teacher, Christina Wilkinson, who received an initial donation for the garden from Sunset Magazine.
    The monies from Mr. Nino will help with ongoing maintenance expenses.  If you'd like to know more about  the Community Garden, please contact Christina Wilkinson at Lillian Larsen School. 467-3216 ext.124
    Thank you Mr. Nino for your support of the Community!

     Students in Mrs. Wilkinson's Ag  class receiving instruction on    proper procedure for trimming as  they begin pruning rose bushes  around school campus.   

    Efforts expanded to beautify the downtown area.  
    The San Miguel Chamber of Commerce is expanding the efforts to maintain the downtown area.  Since the county does not provide for maintenance of the sidewalk/landscape area downtown, it is left up to the community and the Chamber has taken on oversight of that responsibility. Since there is no funding for this project, the work is done by community volunteers. Presently there is only a handful of people helping, so...we'd love to have you consider showing up at our next downtown workday on May 17  to "lend a hand".   There are also expenses that arise that include maintaining benches, watering system, soil needs, and plant replacement.  Thus the Chamber has started a new fund: " 
    Downtown Landscape Maintenance and  'Bench' Fund".  As a part of that fund, they are asking for individuals, groups, organizations, and businesses to make a donation of any 
    amount to contribute to the project or Adopt a Bench by donating at least $200 to the FUND. If you adopt a bench, it can be done as a memorial to someone or as a family or business. We're hoping everyone will want to get involved and do what they can to improve the community.  See Mike at the Mercantile if you are interested or want to know more.  more info? please email Mike  @ 

     Special Thanks to San Miguel Garbage Company  The San Miguel Garbage
     Company has  provided the downtown with some garbage cans for pedestrians to deposit their trash rather than drop it on the ground.  Their involvement in our community efforts is appreciated!
