The fun and fabulous South County Trashion Show took place on Thursday, February 21st at Salinas Valley Fairgrounds to a sellout crowd of over 300 attendees. This year’s event showcased 22 unique outfits made from everyday trash—soda cans, plastic cups, trash bags, newspapers and more. The theme of the event was the Old West. Sheriff Steve Bernal played the role of the sheriff and Audra Vaccarezza, our fashion commentator, was Miss Kitty from the TV show, Gunsmoke. Our special thanks to the many volunteers who worked hard to make this event a success. We want to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors–local businesses, individuals and wineries for making this event possible.

Beware of a new phone scam that is targeting seniors recently. Scammers are engaging in a caller ID trick called “spoofing” to make it appear that they are calling from the Social Security Administration (SSA). These phony callers claim to work for SSA and ask for personal information—such as the individual’s social security number—supposedly in order to process a benefit increase. Please read the FTC warning–click here— to learn more about this latest scam and how to protect yourself.
