On Saturday, the San Miguel Library begins its summer reading program, “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!”
There are categories for everyone from babies to adults with a chance to win great prizes for all who complete the program.
Each child who reads 10 books gets to pick out a brand new book to keep. Teens are entered in a special raffle. The adult program is titled “Exercise Your Mind: READ!” and participants could win a pedometer.
For details, call 805-467-3224 or visit the library — next to the ball field on 13th Street — from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Check out books, audio books, movies, CDs, magazines and games. Free Wi-Fi is available seven days a week from the parking lot.
All that black smoke Saturday was generated by a San Miguel Fire Department training burn of an abandoned building at Mission and 16th streets.
Betty Arbogast passed away June 2 at home. For many years, she was an active parishioner at Mission San Miguel, serving on committees, doing fundraising and singing. Her memorial service will be at the mission 10:30 a.m. Friday, and it will be followed by a lunch reception.
Former San Miguel resident Shirley Upton passed away Saturday following a brief illness. The Upton family was greatly involved in community, church and school activities until they moved out of the area.
