San Miguel Community Events Board Updated 

The Community Events Board  has a new look.

Thanks to two local men, wood craftsman Dave Murrell

& artist SteveKalar,

The board was provided by the San Miguel Firefighters

 Association.  It was put in place to display large signs advertise upcoming  community events sponsored by the towns service organizations.  It will soon also have a separate display of logos for those organizations.

Dave Murrell was assisted in installing the sign top by his brother, Jim, and Gib Buckman.

Thanks to all for a job well done.



A point of  interest from the past: 1949 Rio Fire Engine that was retired from San Miguel Fire Dept in the 80's, purchased by Lester Rougeot for a non-profit kids camp,  where it  now sits on 7X Ranch in Adelaide,  and still bears name of San Miguel Fire 



ann Granados Memorial 8.5.13

   It was designed and created by Steve Kalar.  With the help of the 
Kalar family, it was installed this past Monday.   According to Steve, the heralding angels  represent her watching over us.  Heart for the Arts is what Ann started as a fundraising effort for the San Miguel Resource Connection’s Masters At Their Trade Program.  She did this because of her love for music and performing Arts.  Ann taught keyboard, choir and performing arts for the MATT program.  The cows represent her love for her cows and ranch in Indian Valley.  You will also notice a few angels from student art integrated in the piece.  The cut out holes in the two hearts represent the hole in our hearts left by the lack of her presence.  Ann will be mostly remembered for the teacher that she was and the place she holds in her students hearts.   The memorial itself also represents  us thanking  teachers for the amazing service they provide for their students.
