Members of the El Pinal Parlor No. 163 of the Cambria chapter of the Native Daughters of the Golden West (NDGW) are selling tickets for prepaid orders of their popular cheese enchiladas, a package of six for $15.00.

     “We Make, You Bake” preparation of the packets in a toaster oven, regular oven, or microwave is easy and quick–just a few minutes.  Orders are due by Monday, October 10, for pick up on Saturday, October 22 at the Santa Rosa Catholic Church Parish Hall between noon and 3:00 p.m.  Proceeds will benefit the NDGW Scholarship Fund.

     The annual “We Make, You Bake” drive fundraising had been postponed during the pandemic.  Scholarships are granted to graduates of Coast Union High School, Leffingwell High School, Morro Bay High School, and Mission College Preparatory Catholic High School whose relative is a current or past NDGW member.  The program was expanded recently to include women who are in advanced degree education.  Orders and membership information may be called in to President Anne Bennett (805-927-2652), Co-chair Tala Romero (805-610-4179) or Co-chair Consuelo Macedo (805-748-8651).

     This scholarship program is an integral part of the commitment to the local and statewide services for which the NDGW is recognized.  NDGW was established in 1886 exclusively for women who were born in California.  The ladies met in each other’s parlors, hence the naming for local chapters.  The local El Pinal Parlor No.163 was established in 1908 and meets on the second Tuesday of each month.  Having been reliant on Zoom, they plan to resume gathering together with a social event at Robin’s on Tuesday, October 11, and then meet in the at Santa Rosa Parish Hall in November.
