    Native Daughters present
    Quilt of Valor to local veteran!   
    Anthony Grajeda served in Iran, Afghanistan and Egypt from 1998-2007 before he was injured with shrapnel from an IUD.
     Anthony   was one of 8 
     who made it back out of 68 comrades.  Out of the 8, four have committed suicide and yet, Anthony says he would go back if they would let him. Before his very serious injuries and  lengthy recovery,  he was an interrogator connected to the Special Forces. As an interrogator, he learned to speak Arabic as well.  He has a wife and three children,
     works in Atascadero  and lives in San Miguel. 
    His supportive family attended the
     presentation as did his second grade 
    teacher, Mary Strobridge. 
     The quilt was made by  Native Daughte
    rs' sewin
    g committee, under the direction of Barbara Bruce.  San Miguel Native Daughters were honored to be able to present this Quilt of Valor to Anthony acknowledging and thanking him for his service to this country.

  • San Miguel Fire Dept. wants you to be aware of  Fire Danger as well as Upcoming  Weed Abatement Program
    Due to the abnormally dry conditions and the resulting extreme fire danger, weed abatement inspections will be earlier this year than last.   With Fire season starting early it is time to cut or disc weeds to protect your property and your neighbors property.   The fire chief will soon be issuing notices of  need to abate weeds for any property with weeds more than 3” tall.  The sooner you take care of your weeds the better.  Also, if you happen to be a contractor who does weed abatement and have an interest in contracting with the CSD for weed abatement, you can call the CSD office at 467-3388 for more information.

    History Project: 
    With fire season coming early again this year, decided to share a photo from a 1933 fire at the San Miguel Flouring Mill at north end of town.  It has been in operation since 1891.  It had a brick restraining wall in case of fire and that worked to protect the south end of the building. 
    Following the fire, the mill was rebuilt as a flat warehouse to store sacks.  A feed mill was installed to manufacture livestock feed and process and store grain instead of making flour.  

    Today the north end of the building that was added after the fire still manufactures livestock feed and stores grain.  The center section was torn town and changed .  The south end remains unchanged. 

    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

    San Miguel Girl Scouts Update

    Cookie sale season is officially over. We are happy to report that we made our goal.
    Which means we sold enough cookies to be self-sufficient for our next Girl Scout year
    and still have enough to pay 50% out of troop money to go to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk
    Camp for Girlscouts in October! We are so excited. Thank you to all that supported us!!!

    Thank you to all San Miguel residents who supported our Food drive! We are so glad and grateful to be able to give back with your help.

    Time is running away from us and our focus is on Kaleidoscope only. We know now how to have a proper outdoor Flag ceremony. We can read and use a city map, including knowing basic parts of a compass and taking a bearing. We also know now how to start a fire with a battery, steel wool and kindling. We concentrate now on setting up a campsite and tent. We also have some more detailed planning todo in regards of what we need to pack and which foods to take that do not require refrigeration. We are all a bit nervous about the challenge ahead but I am confident that the girls will do great!
     Picture below is some of the girls with Pastor from Lighthouse Church when we dropped off the food.
