Two local fundraising events will be held this weekend to benefit a high school football program and a historic schoolhouse.
Starting at 5 p.m. Saturday, the Bearcat Boosters are sponsoring an all-you-can-eat Crab Feed Fundraiser at the Mission San Miguel Parish Community Center behind the mission.
For $50, you can enjoy delicious crab with salad, bread and two drinks while helping raise money for the Paso Robles High School football program. There will also be silent and live auctions. For information, call Heather Gray at 550-9403.
The schoolhouse is the last public building still standing in the Adelaida area, west of San Miguel. Funds will be used for restoration, repair and maintenance of the building and grounds.
The event starts at 6 p.m. at 9988 Chimney Rock Road.
Eminent county historian Dan Krieger, professor emeritus Cal Poly, author and lecturer, will present a program titled “Before Adelaida: Salinans, Padres, Rancheros & Bandidos.”
The pioneer-inspired dinner is $45 per person or $35 for Dubost Country Club members. To purchase tickets in advance, call 226-8463 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets will be available at the door.
On Monday, the third workshop for the Northern San Luis Obispo County Salinas River Trail Master Plan will be held in the Paso Robles City Council Chambers, 1000 Spring St., from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
The workshop gives San Miguel residents who own property along the river a chance to learn about the process, see trail types and alternative alignments, and ask questions of the project team.
