After experiencing the many climatic changes in the past few weeks, including extreme heat and humidity, and thunder and lightning storms, I am happy to report a lovely Autumnal day as we approach the Equinox. The large redwoods outside of my airy cyber hut are outlined in clear blue skies.
The recently held Cazadero Old Time BBQ was a big success and I thank all of the very dedicated volunteers who make this wonderful event happen. Grand Prize winner of the Pie contest was Jessica Bennet with her luscious Peanut Butter Cream Pie. YUM! The folks from the Performing Arts Camp were a terrific help in staging this fabulous ‘fun-raiser’! The Community Club will disperse the funds raised with several large and very local donations-more in the next column.
Montgomery Elementary School students have a several fun activities scheduled for October, with Oct. 5th the school picture day. On October 10th the Santa Rosa Symphony will be on campus for a mini-concert. On Oct 19th Ms. Port’s TK through 2nd graders will go on a field trip to Peter’s Pumpkin Patch. The Annual Halloween Carnivalwill be held on Oct. 27th. A busy Autumn season.
The next meeting of the Cazadero Community Club will be on Tuesday, October 3rd-7 p.m. at Firehall #1. Join your neighbors in planning great events which benefit the entire community! The Annual Holiday Crafts Fair comes up on Saturday, November 11th-from 10-4 also at the Firehall. Please call 632-5545 if you have a special item that you would like to exhibit at this fun event.
