Updates for late November

Reconstruction update & Thanksgiving Dinner @ Magalia Community Church

News from Jaki’s Hilltop Cafe!

Magalia Community Church’s
29th Annual Thanksgiving Community Dinner
is this Saturday!

Jonesing for the cooking at Jaki’s Hilltop Cafe? Jaki & crew are coordinating the cooking for the Magalia Community Church’s 29th Annual Thanksgiving Community Dinner this Saturday, November 18th from 11am to 3pm. Come & enjoy a complete turkey dinner! Bring family & friends. Dinner is free—though, if you have it in your heart & wallet, a $5 donation would help them cover some of the cost.

… AND, if you’re so inclined, the Church could really use some volunteers that day as well. Please make contact with them at 877-7963 to learn what work is needed and when.

Jaki says: “It’s an honor to be such an important part of this event for our community!”


Building Demolition Underway

Jaki writes:

Work is underway at last!

Good to see progress!

“Many people have commented on how nice it is to finally see activity going on with the building at Jaki’s Hilltop Cafe. They have started interior demo! The roof trusses are on order and plans are submitted for the rebuild.  We are still looking for reopening somewhere between April and June if all goes well.  We thank you for your support, encouragement and patients during this process. Updates will come out as we know more.

“You are a fantastic community and we can’t wait to be serving you again!”

Photos from 2017 Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat was a great success this year! We’ll keep these pix up for a  little while longer; if you see yourself or your kids, feel free to take copies.

WORTH KNOWING: This technique works on many (not all) websites. However, some images on the Internet are copyrighted or have other qualifiers that would make them not legal to use as your own. (Check before you save.) The photos shown here were taken by Jaki or her staff, and they’re happy to offer them free to the families of those seen having fun.
