Critter Corner: The wildlife around here is such that we are all so thrilled to be fortunate to have so many beautiful animals and birds to observe. They are wondrous, as all God's creatures are. We are just the beneficiary of all that He has provided for us to observe, and lucky to live in an area so rich. I'll keep you posted as to what is going on in our area, as we have lots of activity. No Stump sighting yet, we sure hope he is OK but will keep you posted.
Nipomo Lions Club: Remember that April 6 is the date set for the Nipomo Lions Club 8th annual Charity Golf Tournament fundraiser at Monarch Dunes golf course.

They are offering the 188x24 tee signs with your name and logo, with a contribution of $100. There will be over 100 players at the tournament, making this an inexpensive form of advertising.
