We’ll see y’all this Saturday at Sagebrush Days!

Early breakfast will be served both at the Country Diner and by the Native Sons of the Golden West. Peddlers Faire booths will open at 8 a.m. Other San Miguel businesses will also be open for the day.

The parade steps off at 11 a.m. at 14th Street, goes south to Father Reginald Park next to the Mission then comes back again — the only parade in the county that goes both ways and you get to see both sides of the horses!

The Lions Club will barbecue and the Native Sons will feature Dutch Oven Cookery and make ice cream sundaes during the day. Bake an apple pie and bring it to the Country Diner by noon for the 1 p.m. contest.

Also, tickets will be sold for Chicken Patty Bingo. Live music for all this fun and games will be provided by Matt Nino. Y’all come and see us, y’hear!

Poetry at library

For National Poetry Month, San Miguel Library will feature cowboy poetry on Tuesday, April 21, and Thursday, April 23, at 3 p.m. on CDs.

People are encouraged to bring their own poetry to read at the sessions. The library is on 13th Street next to the baseball diamond in the park. For information call 467-3224.

Council meeting

The San Miguel Advisory Council will hold its regular meeting on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Community Building behind the Library in the park.

On www.discoversanmiguel.com you will find interesting historic pictures and stories about early days in San Miguel. This month read about a large fire at the old mill at the north end of town.
