"Hacienda Angels for Hope are joining the fight" and that's just what catches your eye at the top of their flyer. Sunolian Carolyn Glass will spend the weekend of July 10 -11 walking and climbing the streets and hills of San Francisco for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Along with teammate, Patricia Valentine, they will walk a total of 39 miles beginning and ending at Golden Gate Park and sleeping at Chrissy Field. Each walker is required to raise at least $1,800 to be able to participate and Carolyn has raised $5,000 over the last two years she has participated. Her personal goal this year is to raise $3,000. Carolyn's interest in the Walk for Breast Cancer began when a family member contracted the disease. Carolyn also plays bingo weekly with her Aunt at the Hacienda Senior Citizen Mobile Home Park and donates all of her winnings to Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. In fact, it was two women at the Mobile Home Park who helped with the team name "Hacienda Angels for Hope". Carolyn says it represents "angels for the past and hope for the future". If you would like to help Carolyn reach her goal and raise at lease $3,000 or even more, please contact her at 925-862-2325 or send her an email at carolyn@nothingbutnet.net.

The excitement was building as enthusiastic and nervous students clamored noisily into Sunol Glen School's auditorium last Thursday for their 6th annual Tubular Talent Show. Produced by the schools student council, there was a tropical theme this year and with all the creative stage decorations and student council costumes you could easily feel that you were at the beach on some tropical island. Parents lined the walls of the auditorium armed with video cameras to catch these rising stars. I must say in between the singing, dancing, cellist, harpist, guitarist, monologues and comedians, my very favorite was Sunol's precious preschoolers who donned yellow construction paper hats in the form of chickens and sang a few very endearing songs. I believe they also received the loudest cheers and applause. All in all the talent show was again a huge success and a whole lot of fun.
