This week, our illustrators breathe life into cats, ghouls and monsters in preparation for All Hallows’ Eve. As we lean over our work, a chill across our backs reminds us that the mischief is nigh as the witching hour approaches.
September 27, 2011 is no longer just an ordinary day in the city of Santa Cruz. It is now proclaimed in honor of UC Santa Cruz’s mascot Sammy the Slug.
Don’t fall back on a barrage of gift cards this year! Step outside your gift giving comfort zone this holiday season and try one of our socially responsible options.
Friends of Thanksgiving looks forward to and is seeking volunteers for the annual Santa Cruz Community Thanksgiving Dinner, normally put together by the recently closed Veteran’s Hall.
Approximately 25,000 ghouls, goblins and Gagas clogged downtown Santa Cruz to take part in Halloween festivities. They were joined by over 100 law enforcement officers surveying the scene by foot, car and helicopter who were there to keep the peace.
Allowing yourself to spiritually connect with the food you create and your surroundings will make for an entirely different form of giving thanks.
It’s that time again. Halloween is over, the first round of midterms have taken their toll, and the holiday breaks are looking more and more inviting. It is our annual season of family, celebration, and especially in these hard times, a season of giving. Santa Cruz county has been proven to reflect this generous spirit, boasting various food and coat drives and donation centers around the city. So round up those last few cans of untouched food or that outgrown sweater from your grandmother and do some community good with them. Because while they may be taking up the back corners of your cabinets or catching dust in your closet, they just might make someone’s holiday.
