THE SUNOL BUSINESS GUILD is sponsoring a Red Cross blood drive on Wednesday, May 7 from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Color Spot Nursery in Sunol. The Red Cross van will be in the park at the nursery, located at 5340 Andrade Road. You can schedule an appointment on-line at www.BeADonor.com, using the sponsor code "sunol," or call Kathleen Mitchell at 925-835-1202.

Guild members Bud Hall and Ario Ysit were busy downtown Tuesday (4-8), making holes in pole and post for a very patriotic display of American flags. One thing our politically diverse community can always agree on is support for the men and women of our armed forces who are in harm's way. So, there's no time like the present - donate blood, pray for the soldiers and as we always should, count those blessings.

THE KIDS ROCK: Sunol Glen students will be strutting their stuff this week, with the third-quarter awards assembly Wednesday (4-16) in the school cafeteria, and the annual talent show Thursday (4-17) from 9:30 to 11 a.m. in the school auditorium. The citizenship awards assembly for the first through fourth grades begins at 8:45 a.m., and the honor roll and citizenship awards for the fifth through eighth grades starts at 9:30 a.m. Congratulations to all our considerate, smart and talented students!

EASTER WORSHIP: The Little Brown Church of Sunol invites you to Easter services, including Maundy Thursday at 7 p.m., Good Friday at 7 p.m., and Easter Sunday at 10:30 a.m. There will be an Easter Egg Hunt after services on Sunday at noon. Let's all be extra careful on our neighborhood streets Sunday, and keep an eye out for little bunnies filled with holiday sweets.

MUSIC ON MAIN STREET: Little Valley Vineyard's Bistro welcomes back the popular singer-songwriter duo Patty & Abigail Saturday at 8 p.m. Their Web site describes their acoustic guitar music as a lyrically driven blend of pop, soft rock, blues, and light country, and their songs as expressions of love, life, laughter and change.

Also on Main Street in Sunol, Bosco's Bones & Brew showcases the Scotty Moore Band's special brand of blues on Friday evening, and Three Generation's blend of oldies, Top 40 and light rock on Saturday.

FISH FUN AND RUN: The Alameda Creek Alliance's 4th Annual Steelhead Festival and Watershed Awareness Fair is Saturday, May 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Niles Community Park, 3rd and H Streets in the Niles District of Fremont. This free event includes education on steelhead and salmon restoration, catch-and-release fly fishing lessons, food and live music, and activities for kids. For more information, please contact ACA at 510-845-2233. Sunol environmental group Save Our Sunol will have a booth at the festival, so stop by and say hello!

There are running events that day from the park along Alameda Creek and Quarry Lakes with registration starting at 7 a.m., a 10K "Spawning Run" at 9 a.m. and a 5K Fun Run/Walk at 9:30 a.m. (dogs on leashes okay). There's a $20 fee for registrations received before May 5, and a $25 fee on race day. Youngsters 14 and under can register for $15, and all registered participants receive a beautiful color t-shirt. Please call 510-657-6179 for race information.

This is a great way to spend a healthy, fun and educational day outdoors with friends and family. The event is partially funded by an Alameda Countywide Clean Water Program Community Stewardship Grant, and co-sponsored by the Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District, Alameda County Water District, the City of Fremont, the East Bay Regional park District, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and the Union Sanitary District.
