MaypoleThe annual maypole event sponsored by the Kiwanis Club takes place 5 p.m. Sunday on the lawn area across from the North Gate Gazebo.

It takes about half an hour for participants to "dance" around the pole to create a colorful woven ribbon garland and all participants are eligible for the drawing to take the garland home.  If there are more than 12 participants for the 12 ribbons, participants can double up or trade off holding the ribbon.

Fishing Day

Red square Photo gallery: 29 shots of kids and fish

Rain didn’t keep 130 young anglers from the Kiwanis Club’s 15th annual Kids’ Fishing Day Sunday. They knew the fish would be biting at Lake Clementia, which was stocked with 700 pounds of trout for the occasion. Fishing Club volunteers like Bob Rohland weighed and cleaned the fish -- that’s the day's fifth catch for seasoned angler Ellyn Welton, 11. A free hot dog lunch prepared and served by Rancho Murieta Kiwanis Club and Key Club volunteers followed a morning of fishing. Fishing Day is co-sponsored by the Fishing Club, Plaza Foods, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and Fisherman's Warehouse. Department of Fish and Wildlife personnel led lessons on the importance of maintaining a good habitat for fish, fishing ethics and casting. Read more » about Youthful anglers learn to work the lake

It was a week late, but the weather delay was worth it. Cosumnes River Little League celebrated its opening day under a flawless blue sky Saturday.
