Super Bowl party

On Sunday afternoon, San Miguel Seniors are hosting a Super Bowl party at the Senior Center, 601 E. 12th St.

Doors open at 1 p.m. The game begins at 3:30. Bring a snack to share and enjoy the game with friends. Coffee and lemonade are provided; soft drinks are a dollar. Alcohol is not allowed.

Swim program

The San Miguel Lions Club will not take part in the summer aquatics program at the San Miguel pool this summer after many years.

The annual spring Friday Fish Fry dinners funded the swim program, and they will not be held this year because access to the Community Building is limited during park reconstruction.

The Lions will host fish or rib dinners at other times. The pool will be open on the regular summer schedule beginning on Memorial Day.

Twisselmann remembered

This month’s Discover San Miguel history section features an article about Henry Twisselmann, a prominent and prolific San Miguel businessman who served as a county supervisor from 1921 through 1941.

He and his wife Ida were both generously active in the San Miguel community.
