Cazadero News & Events

As the clouds gather outside of my cozy cyber-hut, I find the prospect of rain quite pleasant! Most of us who live on the ridges and in the valleys of our usually verdant hamlet know that while the sun is fabulous, we need the rain to refurbish creeks and keep the tall redwoods healthy.

This time of year encourages us all to weatherize our abodes - a good place to find help with this is the 1st Saturday 15% off discount sale at Cazadero Supply. As the upcoming holidays promote festive gatherings, Raymond's Bakery will provide special orders to make your life easier! Stop by and sample tasty baked goods, ice cream and yummy pizza!

The Cazadero General store will sponsor the Annual Old Time Xmas celebration downtown on Saturday, December 12th,beginning around Noon. The always enjoyable event features a special parade, bar-b-q and the possibility of 'snow'!! Several of your favorite local craftpersons will offer their delights for easy shopping.

The Russian River Jewish Community holds its Annual Chanukah festival/Latke feast on Thursday, December 17th-5:30 at the Guerneville Senior Center on Armstrong Woods Rd. All are welcome-bring Chanukah menorahs and candles to light, food to share and be ready to dance to Jubilee Klezmer Ensemble. Call 632-5545 for more information.

The Annual Light Parade in downtown Guerneville is Saturday, December 5th and features a fabulous array of lighted floats on Main Street. Immediately afterwards, the KGGV FM 95.1 FM 'River Home Companion' at the Oddfellows Hall welcomes all at 8 p.m.-performances start at 8:30. Tasty snacks and a great raffle make this a great fundraiser.

The students at the Montgomery Elementary School celebrate Thanksgiving together on Wednesday, November 25th. The Winter Play will be performed on Thursday, December 17th-7 p.m. at the Fire Hall. Winter break begins on Dec.21st and school resumes on January 4th, 2010!

The Cazadero Community Club continues to raise money and contribute it to the MES, Cazadero and Ft. Ross Volunteer Fire Departments and for local scholarships for Cazadero El Molino graduates. The recent Halloween Carnival attracted many children and adults, with the Fire Department's scary Haunted House a big attraction. Thanks to Cal Poly(Catherine Canelis' school) for the pumpkin donations!). Club meetings are on hiatus until Tuesday, March 2nd-7 the Fire Hall. Please join your friends and neighbors in planning and participating in these great events throughout the year!

CORRECTION: many thanks to the terrific kitchen crew of Jeffrey and Mike Dahle at the Old time BBQ.
