    Chili Cook-off, silent auction, drawings, Santa, other activities being planned.  Carnival & Street Faire  vendor applications and parade entry applications now available.  Also available at CSD office or San Miguel Mercantile.  For more information contact 
    MichaelJ.Sanders9@gmail.com

    Get your parade and/or vendor applications in soon, time is growing short!


    Next Planning meeting for Christmas Parade, Dec 16, 10 
    am at the Coffee Station.  Anyone willing to help is welcome!


    Santa will be at the Fire Station following the parade to again greet the children.  They usually have cookies, popcorn, and other treats.  You can lend a hand there as well by dropping off  your homemade cookies or purchased cookies, candies, or other treats for the kids. It would be helpful to drop those off by Friday, Dec.19 at the CSD offices.
    Donations are needed for the silent auction.  We are looking for items people might wish to buy or gift certificates and are asking residents and businesses for donations.  Money raised will help pay parade and event expenses.  Items can be dropped off at the Treasure Locker, Mercantile, or Coffee Station or contact 
    MichaelJ.Sanders9@gmail.com
      Parade Committee is also sponsoring 2 other additional activities:
    On Dec. 15 they will drive around town in the evening looking for the best Christmas decorations in town, including homes and businesses.  Best decorations will be awarded ribbons, announced on Discover San Miguel and announced at the parade.  Hopefully that will get the word out and allow residents time to check them out on their own.  Looking forward to see the Christmas spirit throughout town.  Beginning the end of the first week in December you will notice Snowmen outside several downtown businesses.  They are being built by school classrooms that are hoping to win the prize for most food donated. There will be a collection bin next to each snowman for non-perishable food donations.  Each day food will be removed, counted, and stored for final distribution to the North County Food Bank. Support your favorite Snowman, classroom, and Food Bank by participating in this activity.  It's just one of many ways you can help others.  If you check back next week, I'll post here FYI the location of each snowman and which class is sponsoring each.
    Lots going on Dec. 20th in downtown San Miguel.  Plan to be part of the fun.  Hope to see you there.

     School Board Meetings  information

    History Project:  This  month we are sharing with you Bert's Story-- as written by Bert  King, 94 years young.  He lived in San Miguel from 1929 until 1934 with his Grandfather who operated the newly built Richfield Station.  It is presently the Coffee Station owned by Ben and Kelly Work.  They still have one gas pump with the blue eagle Richfield logo which Bert told us was designed byhis uncle Harold who worked for Richfield and that's how his Grandpa got the lease of the station.  Behind the station was a mechanics  garage.  In case you don't know, almost that entire block had been destroyed by fire  in August 1927 , and  they built the Richfield Station on the corner that previously was the site of the Kalar Garage.  You can see the Bank of Italy building in the background.  

    If you have any old photos or information about San Miguel's past that you would be willing to share with us, we'd  love to hear from you.  2011SMRC@gmail.com.  Be sure to check out the posts on the history discussion board  You may have input to add or you may find some about where you live  or lived in town
