Mission San Antonio de Padua invites everyone to enjoy its annual Fiesta on June 10 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. beginning with the celebration of Mass.
The chicken or tri-tip barbecue dinner is $12 per plate. There will be dancing to local bands and displays by artists and artisans.
This is the only mission still located in its natural setting of beautiful hills. Turn from Highway 101 on Jolon Road, just north of Bradley, and follow it to Fort Hunter Liggett Military Installation.
Be sure to have your identification and current car documents with you.
Last year, the Campaign for Preservation of Mission San Antonio de Padua was launched to retrofit the buildings for earthquake safety.
It is a tax-exempt organization, and donations are welcomed. Donations may be sent to Mission San Antonio, P.O. Box 450, King City, CA 93930.
Information is available at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 831-835-4478.
Adobe friends honored
Friends of the Adobes presented Lester Rougeot with a service award during the Estrella Adobe memorial service Sunday.
The plaque was inscribed to Lester and Barbara Rougeot, honoring both for their many years of dedication in helping restore and preserve the historic adobe buildings in our area.
Barbara died in 2010. They were both very involved in community service both in San Miguel and Paso Robles.
Lester has a wonderful talent for fundraising and has been instrumental in helping organizations as well as local people in need.
These past months, he has been busy writing an autobiography that will be published this summer.
Watch for it on the shelves of the Rios-Caledonia and the Pioneer Museum.
Church freshened up
The Lighthouse Community Church is shining brightly with its new paint and trim as work continues.
The outside is looking good, and one finds goodness inside.
