Breakfast with Santa… the annual community gathering Oakhurst Community Center involving great food, holiday crafts and seat time with Santa himself almost didn’t happen this year due to a snowy weather intervention by Mother Nature herself on December 7th. Seven plus inches of fresh snow blanketed the area that Saturday morning snowing the majority of the volunteers for the event in their homes and turning the driveway from Road 425B to the Community Center parking lot into a treacherous slope. So… we took the hard decision to cancel the event.
Now December is a busy month and that goes especially for events at the Community Center so it looked very likely that the 2013 edition of the Breakfast with Santa would not happen. It took some work and most importantly it took key support from Laura at the Community Center and the Sierra Oakhurst Kiwanis to work to squeeze the event into the only possible window before the end of the month – Saturday, Dec 21st.
So – bring your appetite, pull together your last minute Christmas list wishes and round up your family and friends for a wonderful breakfast and a great community gathering in our little place here in the foothills!
What better way to (almost) wrap up a fundraising campaign (the Steve4 Mayor campaign) than with a fun family event! The great guys at the Met Cinemas are hosting a benefit screening of Wreck-It Ralph for us this coming Thursday night, June 27. Doors open at 9pm with the movie starting at 9:30pm. Tickets are $10 per person ($12 at the door so get your’s early!).
This is a join event with us and the Boys & Girls Club of Oakhurst and the Met will very generously be donating all proceeds from ticket sales and concessions to us (that’s so awesome guys!!!).
Oh – and as a little incentive there will be a raffle for all attendees of a Nintendo 3DS and Wreck-It Ralph video, courtesy of Ameriprise Financial!
As we roll into the home stretch of the Steve4 Mayor fundraising campaign we’ve got two very different but very fun events in store this weekend! Join us for a concert on Friday night at Yosemite Lakes Park and on Sunday a BBQ lunch and train ride through the towering pines of the Sierras.
More info on both these events here.Read More
It was a fun and very informative event yesterday when Kathy, Brenda and Gail from Fresno Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation Service visited us this past Saturday. Kathy brought along 4 feathered friends; Big Momma the Barn Owl, Jagger the Great Horned Owl, Camelot the Harris Hawk and Kelley the American Kestrel. We learned much about these beautiful animals.
Here are a couple of pics.
