Jury trial is due to start on July 11.

Raffle tickets at $2 each may be purchased by calling 868-1617, or write to COAST, P.O. 541, Stinson Beach 94970. "Ocean Waves" can be seen at the quilt exhibit at the Marin County Fair July 3-7.

Food Exchange

The food program formerly held at St. Aidan's church has evolved into being a Food Exchange and has changed location. Those in need can pick up bread, deli items and organic produce at 108 Olema-Bolinas Road, just opposite the Bolinas school office, Sundays from noon to 1:30 or until the food runs out, or ask that a full food box be put aside to be picked up later on Sunday.

A monthly donation of $10-$15 per household (or whatever is affordable weekly) is requested, and also that recipients participate at some level with the jobs involved in maintaining this useful service, such as taking compost to the farm, recycling boxes, being a driver. There is a $5-$10 stipend for drivers. Call 868-1359 for info, or just show up on Sunday.
