I know it’s cliché but I do remember way back when you did not have to lock your homes let alone your car doors but alas it’s a new millennium and crime has found its way to our small hamlet once again. A crime wave of burglarized cars has hit Kilkare Road residents on several occasions within the last couple of months.

Some of the homes in that area are fairly remote; in fact, a resident actually caught someone rifling through his car last week at approximately 5:00 a.m. one morning. And his car was parked quite a ways from the street up a long driveway. Unfortunately the criminal escaped but I’m sure this creepy burglar would attempt to find their way into cars or even homes anywhere in town so everyone please do not leave valuables in your cars and lock your cars and homes. Let’s watch out for each other and please keep alert of any suspicious activity and immediately call the authorities.

After many months of planning, the Sunol Glen School Community Club’s annual Spring Fling is being held at the Sunol Event Center this Saturday. There’s years theme is a Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament. No cash prizes will be awarded, only great trophies, prizes and bragging rights. Poker instruction is provided at 6:00 p.m. and the tournament will begin at 6:30.

If cards are not your game, there will be plenty of food with a dinner buffet, beer, wine and whiskey tasting, silent and live auctions and dancing to music by Odznenz. All proceeds benefit Sunol Glen Schools art, music and computer programs. Tickets are $35.00 and can be purchased by contacting Lisa Ball at 925-862-0675, Lori Nielsen at 925-862-2970 or Stacy Strachan at 925-209-3512. This event is for adults only.

Do people write “wash me” on the rear window of your car? Do you have a black car like mine that shows every speck of dirt? If you answered yes to either question then its time to take your car to Sunol Glen School’s annual student council car wash this Friday from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Cars are only $5.00 and SUV’s and vans are $10.00.

A May 19 “Spring Bash” hosted by Sunol Glen School art teacher Darlene Wexner and her daughter, Annie was a attended by well over 30 students from Sunol Glen School and Pine Valley Middle School in San Ramon, where Annie attends seventh grade. The students were asked to bring their spare change to the party in an effort to collect a donation for a former Sunol Glen student, who is now a freshman in college and in need of a transplant. In that one evening the kids collected a whopping $300.00. Way to go!

Oh I know everyone in Sunol is so anxious to find out why a certain movie film crew has been seen all over town for the last month, but you are just going to have to wait until my next column and you will be pleasantly surprised.
