Saturday, December 6
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm: Book Signing
Please help Nancy Kille launch her first book, "The Death Contingency".

Meet Regan McHenry, a Santa Cruz, California Realtor, whose work puts her in the midst of mystery, mayhem and even murder.  The amateur crime solver uses tools and techniques she's learned during her career and skills she's honed as a keen observer of human nature to solve mysteries - just not always soon enough to stay out of trouble.

The murder mystery is set in Santa Cruz and Bonny Doon.  You'll recognize local sites.  The Bonny Doon Volunteer Fire & Rescue Team even makes an appearance.

Please join Nancy and husband Craig, a.k.a. chief editor, for a book signing at 301 Azalea Lane. (Turn off Empire Grade 1.25 miles below Felton Empire at Pineridge)

Get your books personalized - they'll make fun holiday gifts for friends and family.  Large print available, too. Details at www.GoodReadMysteries.com or 427-1320.

Telephone 911 For All Emergencies

Burn Season Begins December 1st.  Yard trimmings can be burned only on "burn days".  Telephone 1-800-CAL-BURN to hear the Monterey Bay Air Pollution Control District's daily recording declaring whether that day is a "burn day" or a "no burn day".  Their decisions are based on air pollution factors and not fire safety.  Before burning, residents should judge fire safety factors such as high winds.  Detailed regulations and fire safety information are available from the California Department of Forestry, 6059 Highway 9 in Felton, telephone 335-5353.  Some basic rules include:
  • Material being burned must have grown on the property and should be dry.
  • Burning is limited to daylight hours.

Bonny Doon Presbyterian Church Quilt Raffle
$2 per ticket / $20 for 12

It has become a much loved annual tradition to make a quilt to raffle at our annual craft faire. As in past years, it is often a joint effort between several members of our church and our friends in the Bonny Stitchers. This year each quilter was given five irregularly shaped prints depicting a traditional family Christmas experiences of exchanging gifts and asked to complete a panel however they like from the prints. The freedom given to each quilter, accounts for the varied style throughout the quilt. In keeping with the theme of our traditional gift exchange, in the lower corner one of the panels has appliqué gift packages with large red bows.

Tickets will continue to be sold through Sunday, December 21th, when the winning ticket will be chosen after church service. You do not need to be present to win.

You may purchase tickets at Ward Christmas Tree ranch, or call 466-9724, or email suecannon@yahoo.com, or join us during our Sunday worship service.

Funds raised from the quilt raffle go to the Bonny Doon Church building fund for a new church.
