Rancho Murieta Little League opening day

Photo gallery (93 photos from the day)

The T-ball Hurricanes were joined by Tigers, Cowboys and a real live goat at Stonehouse Park Saturday for Cosumnes River Little League opening day. Rob Winter, league president, welcomed two dozen uniformed teams and thanked the volunteers who make CRLL a reality, singling out Blake Carmichael for his years of support as a manager, board member and league president. Carmichael received a memorial brick and also threw out the first pitch. Josie Viegas, a Pleasant Grove High School senior and former CRLL player, received this year’s Christina Rodness Scholarship. CRLL youth coach Jack Gignilliat was announced as the recipient of the Christopher Walters Scholarship. The scholarships honor Rancho Murieta children whose memories are enshrined on plaques at the park. Boy Scout Troop 633 raised the flag and local pilots timed a fly-by to the last strains of the national anthem, and the opening ceremony concluded with the crowd singing “Take Me Out to The Ballgame.” Next up was a hot dog lunch prepared and served by Kiwanis Club volunteers before an afternoon of playing ball.

Music Mike

Photo gallery (35 shots of the show and the audience)

Music Mike charmed children, parents and grandparents with a music- and and dance-filled performance at Lake Clementia Amphitheater Sunday afternoon. The merry adventure began with dozens of children singing along to time-honored favorites like “Bingo” and “Ring Around the Rosie,” then took a madcap turn with a version of “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” that featured crawling like snakes, hopping like rabbits and flying like birds.  After “hotdog rolls” down the slopes of the amphitheater, marching with maracas, lots of singing, a geometry lesson with colorful scarves, and some spirited dancing with the folks, it was time to go home, and every child received a lollipop compliments of Music Mike. The Kiwanis Club, which has made the free annual event part of growing up in Rancho Murieta, said about 170 attended the show. Click for larger image.
