Cazadero Communications - November 2015


Cazadero Communications - November 2015

by Natasha Pehrson

Blue sky is now appearing after a refreshingly damp morning. As I write this in my cosy cyber-hut, the redwoods and madrones appear green and golden.

We certainly need a resumption of \'normal\' rainfall -- be extra careful if lighting your fireplace or woodstove as it is still exceptionally dry.

Events in our Community

The Cazadero Community C!ub invites you to the Annual Holiday Craft Fair on Saturday,November 14th, from 10-4 at Firehall #1. A myriad of locally produced handicrafts, including ceramics, jewelry, delicious homemade jams, hand knit items, gorgeous soaps, locally authored books, hand sewn household items, fabulous home baked items(my usual banana cream pie,too), and more await you! Make your holiday or other gift shopping easy and local! Tasty snacks,too! If you would like to volunteer to help with the Fair\'s Cafe\', please call me at 632-5545.

In the School

Congrats to new MES School Secretary Julie LaPlante,who will help keep us informed of of the activities, as well as studies for the students at the Montgomery Elementary School. Mr. Ramalia\'s 3rd-5th graders went on a great field trip to a pumpkin patch and corn maze in Santa Rosa. After a grey day of fun, they all went home with pumpkins! Ms.Ports Kindergartners-2nd graders were planning a trip to Peter\'s Pumpkin Patch in Petaluma. The Boosters Club will be cooking up special hot lunches each 3rd Thursday of the month for all. Music is a very important part of the curriculum and a teacher from the Mr. Music Foundation will spend alternate Friday mornings with the students, encouraging participation in singing, playing instruments and learning music. Of course we also thank Barbara Parmeter for her 30 years as MES Secretary.
