Bonny Doon Presbyterian Church by Ted Louv

We envision providing a public meeting place for the Bonny Doon community to gather for coffee, tea, and home baked goods.

Local Author Nancy Lynn Jarvis reads from her latest book, Buying Murder. The book begins with the Martin Road fire and the Lockheed fire and quickly turns to murder and mystery.

For information call (831) 426-6858

FOUND: Bearded Dragon
This morning my son came to visit and found an 18 inch long Bearded Dragon sunning itself on our driveway.  A Bearded Dragon is a lizard native to Australia that many keep as pets.

Do you know anyone who has lost one?  Robert Forte  440-8641
