Cambrian letters to the editor Oct. 18

Over the finish line

We have reached our goal!!

There are not enough words to properly  say “THANK YOU” to the community of Cambria. It is a dream come true for everyone who has worked so hard to make this happen. In addition to all the individual contributions large and small, I don't think there is an organization in town that has not given to meet our goal — churches, businesses, book clubs and school groups, as well as other nonprofit groups.

This is an awesome community and I am so proud to be a part of it.

Most of all, a very special and personal thank you from me to the members of the Friends of the Cambria Library.  There are not enough words to show my appreciation for all you have done.
Thanks for always stepping up for all the events and all the hard work  over the years to make this happen.


Jeri Farrell, a very grateful president

Golfing aids kids

Wow. Another year has passed and — I don’t know about you, but for me — years go by very quickly.

We will be doing our 24th annual “It Shouldn’t Hurt To Be A Kid” fundraiser for the abused children in San Luis Obispo County. As we have done in the past, we will be holding a golf tournament at the Links Golf Course in Paso Robles at 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 20.

After the tournament, we will have a barbecue at the American Legion Patio and we will be serving chicken and tri-tip with all the trimmings. There will be a raffle for cash money (you do not have to be present to win) and we will also have a merchandise raffle (you do have to be present to win).

The golf tournament is for the amateur only. You will have a chance to win $10,000 on a designated par three of 138 yards. There are other tee prizes on all par threes.

We need more golfers. If you would like to participate in any of these activities, please give me a call at 927-3449.

Also, we need merchandise donations for the raffle. No donation is too small — and it is tax deductible. Thank you and God bless.

It takes a village ...

Hi. I’m Paige Spiller and I’m the person who made the dog for Little Sur Inn. I wanted to thank everyone who helped us.

Thank you, Taylor Hilden, for creating the festival. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have had so much fun with it.

Thank you, Linda Finley and Susan Atencio for helping me and everyone else with our scarecrows.
Thank you, Michele Sherman, Gil and Val Eastman and Sara Blair-Field for giving us all the cool and fun stuff! Also, the main things we needed; thank you.

Thank, Sue Robinson, for the nametags; it really helped us stay organized.

Thank you, Ms. Morrow and Mr. Laurence, for making this class; it is and will always be my favorite.

... to raise a scarecrow

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank many people for donating supplies that helped create our scarecrows in our 3-D Art class. We used wire, papier-mâché, wood and screws to build our scarecrows. We also needed bags and stuffing to stuff our scarecrow’s bodies.

I wish to thank Linda Finley, Susan Atencio, Michele Sherman and all the other people involved who donated money to have a scarecrow placed at their business. Thank you for all your support.
