Fortunately, her dog stayed still and quiet and the cougar moved on without incident. Another reminder that we live close to lots of forest cover for the various wild animals in [...]

We are also very fortunate to have so many books donated by a community who loves to read and to share as well as having a qualified librarian to organize and keep the library in order. However, some of our residents are new and others don’t like to read signs, notes, memos, etc. regarding how the library is [...]

“Do a little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world” Desmond Tutu I saw this quote last year and immediately thought of how our Craig Bay Community comes together every fall to help The Salvation Army provide support to those in need in the Oceanside area.
