The SMCC hosted a great Mixer at the Military Museum at Camp Roberts on March 7th. About 20 people attended, interacted in lots of military professional Q/A and witnessed the incredible number of artifacts that are carefully maintained by the curator, Gary McMasters. Food (provided by the SMCC Board members) and wine (generously supplied by San Marcos Creek Winery). This was a very dynamic and informative mixer.
Look forward to our next Mixer in June at the Vines RV Resort and in July with the 4North County Chamber Mixer in Templeton. More information about dates and times of mixers and the May Car Show will be announced as we draw closer to the actual event.
Special Thanks goes out to the Ranchita Canyon 4H Club children who donated their time on Sunday, March 19th to help sand and oil the benches on Mission Street in San Miguel. We want to recognize Kaitlyn Hebrard, Reagan Glenn, Briley Bowen, Bella Bowen and Bennett Cavalletto and their parents who showed up at The San Miguel Mercantile bright and early in the morning to take care of this very needed assignment.

We are excited to announce that member organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters of SLO, has received some well deserved recognition recently with the National Agency of the Year Award! BBBS SLO was one of six agencies recognized during the 2016 National Conference Gala held in Orlando, Florida in late June. Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Luis Obispo County was recognized as Agency of the Year in the Small to Mid-sized agency alliance category for building strategy that led to diversified funding and low employee turnover helping to provide the best leadership for their community.
Board President Christie Clemons said, “It’s wonderful to be recognized as best in the nation! But this award, and the life-changing work we do, wouldn’t be possible at all without on-going support from so many individuals and local businesses throughout San Luis Obispo County. The real congratulations go not just to us, but to every one of our volunteers and donors. I also want to add that we are very fortunate to have an exceptional staff that is proactive, hardworking and thorough. They are an extremely dedicated team!”
“These agencies and boards show extraordinary leadership and have huge impacts in the communities they serve,” said Pam Iorio, President and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. With over 300 agencies across the country, Big Brothers Big Sisters serves nearly 170,000 children (“Littles”), their families and 170,000 volunteer mentors (“Bigs”).

We wanted to share a little more information on our current featured member of the SMCC - Water Gap Saver!
The Water Gap Saver was designed and developed for the use in fencing on the ranch and farm. It is designed to reduce or eliminate the time and labor it takes to clean out or rebuild water gaps, when water gaps flood and fill up with debris on your fence crossings. In most cases where it would take hours to clean out or rebuild a water gap, now in can be reduced down to minutes saving time and money.

We encourage you to go check out this great tool that could save you hours of time, not to mention cost savings.
Find out more information at http://www.watergapsaver.com. They have even added some informational videos to show the Water Gap Saver in action!

The San Miguel Chamber of Commerce, which hosted the event, would like to extend its thanks and appreciation to Ed Whippie of Team Auto and Collision for sponsoring the 4th Annual Toys for Tots Car Show and Shine in San Miguel on December 5th. The event drew in over one hundred cars, motorcycles and boats as well as over 1400 toys for area children. According to Mr. Whippie, this was the best of their annual Tots for Tots in North County. San Miguel should be proud! Vendors and businesses on Mission Street had a very successful day as well.
