More than coffee

The Coffee Station is now the San Miguel Coffee Station and Grill. New owners Martin and Victoria Griffen added “The Best Tri-Tip in Town” and other grilled goods to their menu.

As part of his 25 years in culinary arts, which includes bakery experience, Martin served as chef at the Hyatt Lone Eagle Grill in Lake Tahoe. Stop and get acquainted over coffee and a meal.

Park maintenance

Father Reginald Park next to the Mission is looking really good. It is cared for by the Native Sons of the Golden West, generally in the person of Craig Rambo.

Father Reginald McDonough served at the Mission for more than 30 years, and as a native of San Francisco, he was a charter member of the current San Miguel Parlor #150.

The organization works to preserve California history and also has a mission to help children with cleft palates. Members of the Native Sons and the Native Daughters of the Golden West carried a huge California Flag in the Sagebrush Days Parade.
