Alamo News Update
The Community Foundation of Alamo (CFA) announced the 2nd Annual Alamo Walk-About will take place on Thursday, May 19th from 5 PM to 8 PM.
The first Alamo Walk-About took place last year in late October. The CFA board decided to move the date to the springtime to take advantage of the beautiful Alamo weather. The new date also offered more hours of daylight for participants.
The event includes a number of venues up and down Danville Blvd from Andrew H. Young Park and Oak Tree Plaza to the Alamo Women's Club. Each location will offer tasty food to sample or wine and beer to taste. As An added appeal will be a number of music groups at locations along the way. A wine trolley will be available for persons who don’t wish to walk.
Paid participants will pick up a wristband at two locations. If you want to taste wine or beer you will receive a special wristband. A map showing the location of all vendors will be provided. You can visit old favorites and explore new ones.
Tickets for this casual "night on the town" are available from the CFA website CommunityFlundationOfAlamo.com for $20 or can be purchased the day of the event at the CFA Office in Alamo Plaza Center Suite 180D behind Livermore Cyclery. Tickets purchased on the day of the event are $25.
Revenues from this event help support the annual Alamo Tree Lighting Festival in December. Plan now to attend the Walk-About and have a great time!
Can You Dig It?
Work has started on the new Alamo Fire Station 32 at the corner of Stone Valley Road and Miranda Avenue. Earth moving equipment is preparing the site now for estimated completion later this year. A photo opportunity of the new station was held on March 30 with Fire Chief Paige Meyer and County Supervisor Candace Andersen as presenters.
