Back to "School" Clean Up Day!


Our ancestors were often called upon to pitch in and perform a little community maintenance on the "one room" school or civic center or library.

This coming Saturday, August 29th, is your chance to experience that worthwhile endeavor at the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society's Sahyun Library at 316 Castillo St.

The doldroms of summer are over and the new "Academic Year" of research is upon us. Time to clean windows, replace light bulbs, re-affix fallen signs, identify items for a garage sale (or E-bay) and generally get ready for a new season of research and new visitors.

Jim Friestad, our major domo of the Library's facilities, will be the leader for the day's work details. Rumor has it that Marj Friestad, who knows that a happy belly and caffeine makes for a productive worker, will ensure we're be supplied with....something yummy.

Lots of hands will produce quick, yet satisfying, results! Contact Jim (ronjim@cox.net) if you have an area of expertise; otherwise just show up at 9:00 a.m. this next Saturday (August 29th) at the Sahyun Library (316 Castillo St) and experience the joy -- and sugar rush -- of a community cleansing...there may even be tunes!
