the above photo was taken around 2007. The store changed owners in February of 2014. The new owners are calling it the Creston Country Market and Deli.  Excellent food and friendly service, plus a mini-market. If you are like me and must have "Half & Half" for your morning coffee ( or afternoon iced coffee), let me tell you that the milk, etc. is delivered on Wednesdays or Thursdays ! Also, they have on hand some delicious cookies and brownies (made in house) ::::  check out the counter !

NEWSFLASH::  The Creston Women's Club is looking to partner with private citizens and local businesses to up the cash awards for the long standing scholarship program.  Since 1985, over $85,000 has been awarded to local residents for any type of school of "higher learning" or trade school, whatever. There was a very good program from about 1960 through 1983, with thousands handed out over that 23 year period. If you know anyone who would like to make a tax deductible donation specifically for the CWC scholarship program, please snail mail a check -- in any amount, no matter how small  -- made out to the "Creston Women's Club"  with a note on the check  "Scholarship program". You will be sent a letter that includes the CWC  501 3c  non-profit ## for your records.  Snail mail donations to:    CWC Scholarship Program,  PO  Box 63, Creston, CA 93432

   sorry that I do not have a calendar with me at this moment: I am inside the Santa Margarita Library !!

Third Wednesday of October :  7 PM   Creston Advisory Body meeting at the New Sanctuary of the Creston Community Church. The agenda is usually posted onto the Community Bulletin Board two days ahead, and also inside the Creston Library. More details on their website, which is linked on my Contacts/Links page.

   Third Thursday of October :  1 PM   Creston Garden Club meeting, which is open to anyone at all, men, women, who have an interest in gardening here in our beloved village. This is the group that maintains and improves the Community Volunteer Garden, located on Swayze St, next to the rodeo grounds. Contact info is located on my Links and Contacts page. See button above.

  Fourth Thursday of October:  around 6 PM, there will be a Rodeo Wrap Up party inside the Rodeo grounds, where there will be light refreshments and information about how this past Rodeo did - profit wise - and, hopefully, a cash donation will be made to the CATCH  Fund, which is the fund to build the Community Center.

   Halloween - Oct. 31st - Thursday night - rain or shine - around 5:30 PM til around 7:30 PM, the usual Halloween Party will happen in the Garden or inside the Community Center, depending on the weather. Last year, it was just drizzling, and all the kids came inside the Center - located inside the Old Volunteer Fire House at the end of Swayze, next to the creek ! The Women's Club and the Garden Club members provide tons of sweets and candy and hot coffee and hot chocolate, and some of them wear costumes !  It is really fun for both the kids and the adults. There will be delicious hot dogs and cupcakes and lots of friendly conversation. This tradition has been going on for at least about 25 years, probably longer. I have been attending since about 1990 myself and am Uber bummed that I cannot attend this year because I will be on the Other Coast visiting friends and family for nearly a month, traveling via AMTRAK the entire trip !

   First Monday of November, which I believe to be Nov. 2nd,  7 PM, Women's Club meeting at the Community Center, open to all the Creston area ladies !  New members welcome ! This is the club that raises $$$all year long to provide cash scholarships to any and all residents who wish to pursue a higher education, no matter what that may be. The application forms are generally available after January 15th and are usually due in by mail no later than April 1st. The awards are made around May 1st and the money sent directly to the school or institution. Fund raisers include the Spaghetti Feed in mid to late April, affiliated with the Wildflower Bike ride, hosted by the San Luis Obispo Bicycle Club, and then, in June, the Bingo Burger Bash.

    December 4th, 6 PM  Women's Club Christmas party at Rosie's home.  Pot Luck, and gift exchange (Steal a Gift) and general merriment.  ALL  area ladies are invited, especially former  CWC members. This is one of the best ladies night out parties of the year !

    December 19th,  CATCH a Creston Cowboy Dinner Fund Raiser for the CATCH Fund, at the Center, dinner should be really excellent - it was awesome last year. Silent Auction and MAYBE  a Live Dessert Auction. Details still being decided. More info later. Tickets are generally available at the door. Building seats about 120 comfortably. The bathrooms are in now and the walls have been painted inside the Center. Looks fabulous, really. Thanks John !
