Free Friday



Welcome to another Friday! We hope you’re getting into your groove and enjoying the journey so far. This weekend might be a great time to get out for a family hike, stroll around downtown SLO and get frozen yogurt, or stay in and cook dinner together. And of course we want to encourage you to be Free by 5:00 and put those electronics out of sight for awhile. For those of you feeling adventurous, here are some local events happening in our area:

Learn to Fish at the Lopez Lake Kids Free Fishing Clinic
Bring the Kids (under 16) to the Lake for a Free Fishing Clinic on September 15th from 9:00AM-12:00PM. The clinic is held at the Nature Center near the Marina. Attendees must sign up before 11:00a.m. to allow time to fish. Kids will be given lessons with an experienced fishermen on fishing ethics and conservation, knot tying, fish types and ecology as well as how to cast your line. All equipment needed is provided and everyone gets a chance to fish. Click here for the SLO County Parks calendar.

SLO County Coastal Cleanup Day
Saturday, September 15th, 9:00AM to 12:00PM
Would you like to do something outdoors and show Stewardship for our community? Tomorrow you have the chance to get involved with Coastal Cleanup Day, a service project that helps our community in its desire for clean water and healthy marine life. To volunteer, follow this link and sign up for the cleanup site of your choice. (Great idea for UMS students looking for Community Service opportunities!)

Templeton Summer Movie Nights Bring your fold-up chair, a big beach blanket, and a picnic dinner and enjoy an outdoor movie night. It’s fun for the whole family - movies on a giant 25 foot blow up screen - and certainly worth getting out of the house to see!  “Dolphin Tale” will be showing tomorrow night, September 15th, at dusk. This free event will be held at Evers Sports Park on Old Country Road in Templeton.  Call 805.434.4900 for more info.

Next week, be sure to pick up some delicious, locally grown, organic strawberries, for sale before and after school on Tuesday and Wednesday!
