Dear Bonny Dooners,

We are creating a Quilt-to-be-raffled-off that will benefit the Bonny Doon Fire Team entitled "Visions of Bonny Doon 2010". We will need forty-five (45) blocks to complete it.

We would like for you to volunteer to make a 10 1/2" X 10 1/2" block with your vision of Bonny Doon from preshrunk fabric. Your block may be pieced, appliquéd, fabric painted, embroidered, etc. Please sign or initial your block.

We have sample pieces of the backing fabric (green, brown and orange trees), the border fabric (dark green leaves) and other fabrics available. You may incorporate these into your block or use them to coordinate your own fabric choices. I also have books of pattern ideas if you wish to look at them, or visit the library's huge selection of books on quilting topics.

Quilt raffle tickets will be available as soon as the blocks start rolling in.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact me at 831-427-3787 or email shirinmelville@hotmail.com

Have fun and draw on your sense of humor and imagination.

Shirin Schumacher and Jean Meyer

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.
  • An adult must be in attendance.
  • Burn piles should be small and a safe distance from flammable vegetation and buildings.
  • A water source should be available.
