Beautify Cambria and the CSD have installed the new trash/recycle/planters (TRPR's). We have an opportunity to so something else positive for our town—clean up the downtown sidewalks of trash. The Historical Society will host the return of Squibbing Day. Louise and Paul Squibb started cleaning the downtown back in the 1950's, the tradition has been followed off and on for many years. Tote bags with gloves, trash bag, instructions will be handed out at the Bianchini House. Trash pickers will receive the super cool and very stylish "I Squibbed" button! All participants will be treated to lemonade and cookies for their hard work. If you can help make/purchase (eat) cookies, host the Bianchini grounds or have fun picking up trash, contact Claudia Harmon Worthen: 805 927 1934 | m: 805 909 0104 or Consuelo Macedo with the Historical Society. cielos@earthlink.net

(San Simeon, CA).— Hearst Castle’s most popular tours - Grand Rooms, Upstairs Suites, and Cottages and Kitchens tours will all be enhanced with 20 additional minutes of guided tour time beginning November 2, 2015. The extended guided tour time will include insights and views into the outdoor areas of the estate as well as a longer visit inside the buildings thus providing the public with a better opportunity to enjoy and learn about the impressive art collection. The tour routes have also been revised to make the outdoor stairs easier to negotiate. “The public has asked for more time for their tours so they can be more fully immersed in the history and gardens of spectacular Hearst Castle, and we are glad to respond said Acting San Luis Obispo Coast District Superintendent Brooke Gutierrez. “Our guides are thrilled to have more time to share their enthusiasm and knowledge with the public.” The pricing for these tours has not changed. Advance tour reservations are very strongly recommended and may be made at www.HearstCastle.org or (800) 444-4445.
