Ross Valley Toy Donation Drive


Each year many children who reside in the Ross Valley will have a less-than-merry holiday season because their families have fallen upon hard times.   If you would like to help a Ross Valley child, please bring an unwrapped gift to one of the two Ross Valley fire stations in San Anselmo, Station 19 at 777 San Anselmo Avenue or Station 20 at 150 Butterfield Road, or to the Police Station in San Anselmo at 525 San Anselmo Avenue.



Reminder - Downtown Holiday Open House


Don’t forget the Downtown Holiday Open House on Friday, December 13, from 5 to 8 p.m. on San Anselmo Avenue.  Enjoy the holiday decorations, fine food, great company, live music from the “Band of Pirates,” and, of course, a great shopping opportunity.  And, during the holidays, downtown parking is free.



San Anselmo News, published weekly on Fridays, is available at the San Anselmo Town Hall, Library, on the Public Notice Bulletin Board. It is also available on the Town’s website, www.townofsananselmo.org, and by email subscription.
