The oldest man who attended was 105-year-old Harry Wolf of Morro Bay. The oldest lady was 94-year-old Dixie Sinclair Thacker. Each received a gift. Pioneer Day Queen Dottie Reiff and Marshall Ole Viborg greeted everyone. The Queen’s attendants were her daughters Diane Bjorkland of San Luis Obispo and Mitzi Sewell Smith of Creston. Belle Abigail Venturini, representing Willow Creek, and her attendant Alicia Avila, representing Bradley were introduced. Avila is the niece of perennial San Miguel Lion John Craspay.
