    TONIGHT: Fiesta!!! All-You--Can--Eat Taco night at the Pollock Pines Camino Community Center August 16th 5:00-7:30 (Taco choices: beef, fish and Pork Verde) People will be passing out coupons in town at random--or you can go to the community center during the week to pick up some. Although many were on vacation--we had over 100 people last month. Adults $6.00(w/coupon $5.00) Children under 12 $3.00 (w/coupon $2.50) The community center is not a community service district (CSD)--there are no salaries...it is run by volunteers and donations
