Retired teacher and principal Jean Hoffmann has been provisionally appointed to the San Miguel school board to fill the term of board member John Green.
Green resigned when his election to the San Miguel Community Services District Board in November created a conflict of interest. Hoffmann will serve until the November 2014 election.
The San Miguel School Board meets on the second Thursday of the month at Lillian Larsen School. For information, call 805-467-3216.
Help make San Miguel beautiful
Saturday from 8 to 11:30 a.m. is Cleanup (streets and alleys) and downtown Garden Day. If you can help, it is fun to connect with friends and neighbors in a common cause. To work in the sidewalk flowerbeds, meet at either 14th or 12th Street with tools and gloves. All the plots have not yet been adopted. The volunteer firemen have a large dumpster at the firehouse and they greatly appreciate donations for dumping large items.
