NEWSFLASH ::  The Rodeo Board presented a check for $5000  to the CATCH Community Center Building Fund on Saturday  Dec 15th  at the 9th ever CATCH  Dinner Party.  WOW  !   Thank you to everyone on the Rodeo Board, especially to James Granthum and Bob York - they presented the check to the applause of 85 attendees. James' sons actually served our delicious Mexican buffet dinner. The dessert auction was amazing, probably over $2000 raised !!

NEWSFLASH::  I have posted the addresses and phone numbers of our elected officials on the contact page.

DID  YOU  KNOW THAT  THE GARDEN CLUB  HAS AN AREA INSIDE  THE COMMUNITY  VOLUNTEER  GARDEN  WHERE CELEBRATION - MEMORIAL - HONOR  TYPE ENGRAVED  BRICKS ARE  INSTALLED ?  It is located at the main entrance, around the three birch trees that are in a huge raised planter !  Anyone can personalize a brick and help support the Community Garden Club - which uses proceeds to maintain and improve our gorgeous community garden - which is sort of like the only real  "park" located here in our Creston area !! Applications to create a personal brick are right there at the entrance to the Garden - which is located on Swayze Street, next to the Rodeo Grounds, and for more info on this idea, please call Judy at  805-226-9489. I have purchased two bricks so far -  one that honors friends and family, and the other that honors the memory of my two beloved BLM Mustangs, who were very dear to me, of course ! The cost for three lines is $75.  I am guessing that there are over 50 bricks in that area so far.

NEWSFLASH :: Creston Compost now has retail hours ::  Tuesdays - Saturdays from  10 -3  - for appointments, call Bob at  805-674-7734  or  805-238-7866 !   100% organic blend of aged mushroom compost -  soil lab analysis provided -  $6  per cubic foot  ( 26 quarts ) which is about  1/2 the cost of premium store brands.
