San Luis Obispo Little Theatre has received a $10,000 grant from The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County.

The grant will be used to organize, inventory and catalogue the Little Theatre’s recently acquired collection of almost 10,000 costumes and accessories (purchased from the now closed Costume Capers) creating a full service costume shop that will serve not only the Little Theatre’s own theatrical production needs, but will make the inventory accessible to other performing arts groups, local schools and the general public.

Los Osos

Skye Schwellenbach of Los Osos recently earned the highest honor in Girl Scouts — a Gold Award — for her project to help the disabled participate in archery at El Morro Church.

Her vision was to bring people together and create a model that can be duplicated by others in the community to become more inclusive. Skye’s project addressed making the archery range at her church wheelchair accessible.

As a result of her award, Skye and two other scouts representing the Central Coast recently traveled to Sacramento to meet with state legislators and participate in the national celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scout Gold Award.
