It’s getting really cold here in the Northern District and I’m ready for the holidays that we celebrate in November and December. To help us prepare, many companies are entering the Christmas business. Groups organize crafts and the city of Atasquadero presents a crafts fair on Saturday the 14th. November, from 10:00 to 15:00 at 9305 Pismo Avenue, Atasquadero Lake Park, their annual holiday shop.
The events coordinator, Patti Deirmenjian, announced As you know, we are lucky to be able to organize a holiday boutique this year. With the masks and the social aloofness we are of course finished!
This year the event will be held outside in the park near the lake, outside the pavilion where it normally takes place. The distance between the pits will be 6 feet. All items sold in the Holiday Boutique are handmade by the seller.
For more information, please contact Patty by email at [email protected] or by phone at 805-470-3178.
In Paso Robles I heard that the artists of the studio in the park are ready to show you during the season with their current holiday handmade exhibition, which will last until September 30th. December is available to help you with your purchases. The exhibition shows the products of 30 local artists and craftsmen.
The studios of the park are located at this address: 1130, rue des Pins in Paso Robles. For more information, please call 805-238-9800.
The art association Atasquadero collects art accessories for low-income children, which are distributed during the holidays. Stocks should not be new, but of high value. Brushes, art paper and tablets, paint, pencils and crayons can be delivered to your address: Arterie 5890, Atascadero.
I think second-hand accessories would be nice, but you can imagine how a little beginning artist would feel if he had a box of new pencils! Don’t forget that there are beautiful artifacts in the artery to make shopping easier.
For more information about the project, please contact the president of the association, George Asdel, at 805-305-5038 or 805-464-0533.
The local manager of Questers d’Agua Caliente California still has his fantastic sales of funky and funky jackets and accessories at the Hope Chest Emporium 5800 El Camino Real in Atasquadero. Sales include coats, jackets, wallets, scarves, wallets, jewelry and other items donated by the community for both men and women. The proceeds of the sale will help the Questers raise money to restore the shop windows of the historic printing house.
For more information, please contact event chair Sheila New at [email protected] or call Karen McNamara at the Hope Chest Emporium, 805-459-5113.
During one of my lectures I told you that the children’s coat would be different this year because of KOWID 19. It hasn’t been canceled. However, in order to guarantee the safety of the volunteers and the beneficiaries of the distribution, we had to make some changes. You should be aware that our committee will be actively working on the supply of warm coats and jackets, as we have been doing for the past 32 years.
Keep returning your carefully used jackets, coats, sweaters and sweatshirts to one of our four cleaners in the Northern District. They clean for free, we pick them up. The novelties can also be delivered to any cleaning company by putting them in a plastic bag and marking them as new/baby wrap. This year we will not place boxes of landings in the companies, as we did last year.
For more information, please contact me at 805-461-1234 or visit our Facebook page. I’ll give you the details next week.
One of our distribution partners in Paso Robles, the Big Paso Robles Toy Bank, has also made some changes this year. You have a new online registration procedure, which is now open until the 20th day of the month. November’s open.

This year they have new opportunities for the community to shop and donate toys for distribution. They have an Amazon wish list and information about the target register with toys in the most needed age groups. Donors will be able to shop from home and send the goods directly to the toy bank.

Coat for children has been a partner of the Toy Bank for 25 years and we regret that we will not be present at Gift Day this year. But we look forward to the year 2021, when together we can help the needy in our northern communities that day.
