Cazadero Communications - September 2011

It’s a lovely afternoon in the redwoods as I write this. The view from my airy cyber-hut shows large trees with a golden light!

Fun with Benefits
I hope that you are planning to attend the Sunday, September 4th Cazadero Old Tyme BBQ at the Performing Arts Camp! Delicious rib and chicken dinners, plus live music, games, famous raffle, pie contest and dessert table-YUM! Presale tickets at the Caz Store. All proceeds directly benefit your community! Organized by the Cazadero Community - come to the next meeting on Tuesday, September 6th;7 p.m. at the Firehall and help plan these events, including the upcoming Crafts Fair on Saturday, November 12th.

The weekly Community Market continues from 10-1 p.m. on Saturdays and do stroll to the nearby fabulous Sky Garden, which is maintained so well by Cathy Schezer, Bonnie Chase and many others!
