C is for CAMPS

by Diana Pasquini, San Juan Ridge Family Resource Center

No doubt about it, summer is definitely here. It’s time for Agricultural Activities, Baseball, Barbeques, and CAMP! This year the San Juan Ridge Family Resource Center is hosting four weeks of summer camps for kids. Our ever-popular SPORTS CAMP returns for its seventh year this July. With Coach John Hughes at the helm, kids will hone skills, forge friendships, and have fun at play on the beautiful Oak Tree Campus. Immediately following SPORTS CAMP during the first week of August will be ART CAMP. Now in its tenth year, ART CAMP is relocating from the North Columbia Schoolhouse to Oak Tree. Led by local artists Ludi Hinrichs, Molly Joachim, Shari Brookler, Camille Collings, and Sasha St. John, this year’s ART CAMP will explore Balkan Culture through the media of drama, dance, music, sculpture, story, drawing, painting and costume.

Now San Juan Ridge traditions, both ART CAMP and SPORTS CAMP were created so that boys and girls could have a high quality summer experience without having to venture far from home. Although camp enrollment fees have risen over the years, our goal is to keep the camps accessible to all without having to sacrifice quality. Sliding scales and campership programs have made it possible for all those who have wished to attend to do so. While no one will be turned away because of inability to pay, some have not been able to attend because camp sessions were full. Camps are filled on a first come-first served basis so we urge you to register as soon as possible.

San Juan Ridge Community Library Update

posted Jun 7, 2016, 1:13 PM by Kristin Snell

by Julie Childs, Board President-San Juan Ridge Community Library










Hours: Tue-Thu 11am-7pm and Sat 10am-4pm        

Phone: 292.3008 during open hours

· Wi-fi and computers available for public use

· Work stations and comfortable seating

· Book sale shelf, DVDs for checkout, periodicals, children’s room

· Experienced staff on-hand

· An ever-evolving collection of wonders to listen to, read, and watch

Our very relevant Library is a great place to come check out! Although our doors are only open part-time, be aware that our loan period is three weeks long, and then you can renew your material. I know what keeps some folks from borrowing is that feeling of having to return items. We have no overdue fines, only our lovely “guilt” jar. So it is a low pressure and super friendly library right here for your use!

We sure felt the love this last Friday evening at our BBBB fundraiser! Thank you for coming out and enjoying the fantastic barbeque and music. We sold books, ate, danced and cavorted with old friends and new. We set the library on its feet for a good while more. We really appreciate all the musicians, volunteers, cooks, dishwashers, and especially Roo for going all the way with this endeavor! Especially all of you also, bringing such great energy, and donations on behalf of the Library.

Melissa Thomas has volunteered to join our board of directors, welcome Melissa! We are so lucky to have such a good team to work with. Thank you to Therese Tesene for your time serving.

Magic the Gathering will be meeting the last Saturday of June, the 25th. Lisa Rowe will host it and you can call her for info, 292-3246.

The Tapestry Project meets here on Tuesdays from 1-3 pm, and Thursdays from 10-12 pm. All are invited to join in the stitching whether you have experience or not. It is a good way to spend time, creating incredible works of art, while sharing stories with some amazingly talented folk. The Tapestries are so inspiring! Come see!

Those who burn without a permit run the risk of being cited by CALFIRE. Lets all be fire-safe!  For more info, please call 292.9159.

 

Tip of the Month

Tip – Assets #32,#39,#40 - Recognizing & Supporting Each Child's Passion

“Follow and chase your dreams." (Alexander Rossi quoted in The Union 5/27/16.) Not everyone will achieve his public prominence, but all can benefit from his advice. A child's, or adult's, passion is what brings them deep pleasure, often what they are good at or what they always enjoy doing when not doing "what they have to do". Summer is a good time to let your children explore different possibilities whether in the arts, sports, sciences, or other areas. When you see their passion, help them do more of it.

To learn more about the 40 Developmental Assets (Got40?), call 271.5617 or email info@Got40.org or NedRussell@pacbell.net.

Ruth Irene Tilton 6/8/22-5/9/16: “Just Do Good Things”

posted Jun 7, 2016, 1:04 PM by Kristin Snell

by Yvonne Varner

Ruth passed away gently on May 9th, 2016 in her home - in her room, with her caregiver, great grandson; Chad Varner and great great grandson; Marshall Varner, by her side. An original “Rosie the Riveter” and a Montana dude ranch chef, Ruth Tilton moved to North San Juan from the Los Angeles area in 1971. She was widowed twice; first by Albion Hart, then by Floyd C Tilton 02/06/98. Ruth traveled extensively to Italy, Japan, to other parts known and collected spoons and pill boxes from all over the world.

She had two children, Rex and Reina, of whom Ruth is survived by Reina. She was an avid gardener and volunteer. She was active in the North San Juan Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary – being in charge of bake sales and fundraisers, North San Juan Community Center Food Bank Distribution – being the “bag” lady for over 40 years, The North Gold Senior Mountaineers - helping with the fundraisers, Bingo Night and was one of the founders, Native Daughters of the Golden West – holding numerous positions in this California historical preservation society, United Methodist Church of North San Juan – being a supporter on the board & setting up picnics and was the Matriarch of The North San Juan Community Church – where her great grandson and her great great grandson are ministers. She was employed by the North Columbia Schoolhouse and North San Juan Old Schoolhouse as a teacher for many years before their closure.

Her devotion to the small community of North San Juan was exhibited by her having what she called, “Tilton's Taxi” in her spare time – to take folks to get groceries or run errands. She is also survived by her grandchildren; Christopher Hart, Charles Hart, Kevin Hart and David Hart, Steve Griffith, Susan Findlay, and Denise Smith. She is survived by her great grandchildren; James Hart, Jared Hart, Jessica Hart, Chad Varner, LeeAnn Varner, and Carolyn Burns. She is survived by her great great grandchildren; Marshall Varner, Jayden Hymes, Julieann Varner, Glen Truitt, and Lilly Burns. Donations of money or perishable food in Ruth Tilton's name may be made to the North San Juan Community Church to begin a new outreach program, “Ruthie's Pantry”.
