Cazadero News & Events February 2010

Wow, I am looking out of the windows of my cosy cyber-hut and the sun is shining! This is quite a contrast from the past 10 days of necessary and copious rainfall! I think that we will all agree that this respite is terrific! I don’t know if this is a signal that we are indeed, going to receive ‘normal’ rain this year.

I would like to remind you all to be very careful around the quickly moving creek.

I am happy that Raymond’s Bakery has reopened after a winter break. Lots of folks will happily resume their relaxing times there,while snacking on yummy baked goods!

Cazadero Supply continues to offer a great 15% Discount each 1st Saturday of the month. An incredible inventory awaits you! Another good way to save locally is to shop at the Cazadero General store-a friendly and warm spot.
