Dad-Daughter Dance is back to the '50s

Dancing

Saturday night's Father-Daughter Dance at Cosumnes River Elementary school had a sock hop theme, which meant poodle skirts, saddle shoes and the like for girls who'd probably never seen such strange garb before. Appropriately attired, and dancing up a storm, were Justin Hayduk and daughter Addison. The theme seemed popular with the dads, who looked like they spent more time dancing than usual before retiring to the sidelines and leaving the dance floor to the girls. But wait – there's more. Read more » Read more » about Dad-Daughter Dance is back to the '50s

Kiwanis Crab Feed

It’s the Kiwanis Club’s mission to serve children, club president Chet Keil said, welcoming a capacity crowd to the club’s annual crab feed fundraiser Saturday night. But on this night, it was the kids doing the serving. Platoons of Key Club members from Pleasant Grove and Sheldon high schools and Rancho Murieta delivered all the elements of the crab feast to the tables that filled the Saint Vincent DePaul Catholic Church social hall. There were also silent auctions, raffles, live music and a bar staffed by the Knights of Columbus. A “wall of fame” featured posters honoring sponsors who had contributed up to $2,000, Keil said.

Toasted marshmallows, cookies, cocoa, candy canes and Santa! Friday was a big night at Stonehouse Park. Thanks to the Rancho Murieta Association Maintenance Department, event organizers were prepared for whatever Mother Nature had in store. Twin fire pits kept the chill away and a huge tent sheltered Santa and Mrs. Claus as they visited with children and the Murieta Dance Company performed a trio of numbers from its upcoming holiday show. Santa alighted from a fire truck to start the holiday season by lighting the decorations. The rain relented for this annual Optimist Club event, which seems only fitting. S’more kits were provided by the Rancho Murieta Community Church. (Click for larger images) Read more » about The clouds part, and in walks ... Santa!

A nice morning to trot for the turkey

Turkey Trot

DonationsAfter Wednesday night's rain, who expected weather so nice for the community's eighth annual Turkey Trot? The Thanksgiving morning event – a 5K run or walk around the community – drew about as large a crowd as the race has seen, in the neighborhood of a hundred participants. It's a casual thing among friends, and the only prizes were pies (chocolate pecan and pumpkin, which looked very good). The run raised $877 in cash and checks and two $25 gift cards for the Paradise fire victims. This year's trot almost didn't happen, and organizers Erin and Eric Dubey and Deborah Craig thanked the Optimist Club, and Melinda Martel in particular, for providing the insurance that allowed it to take place.
