The recent rainy weather will surely bring those
beautiful spring flowers we all love and what a better way
to enjoy natures gifts than with “like-minded women” who
love to hike. East Bay Regional Park Naturalist, Katie Colbert’s
has several springtime outings planned for her hiking group
Women on Common Ground.
The first will be on March 2 from 10: 00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
at the WWII Front National Park honoring International Women’s
Day where they will tour the Red Oak Victory Ship. Registration
is required by calling 925-862-2601 before February 28.
The next hike will be on April 8 at Sunol Regional Park from
5:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Obliviously this hike is for the early
risers because they are calling it the “Sunrise and moonbeams
from Flag Hill” hike. Registration is also required for
this hike by calling the number above before April 5.
I have some very exciting news! Arcadia Publishing, the leading
publisher of local historical books has asked me to author
a book about our beloved Sunol. As some of you may know,
Arcadia has published books nationally as well as locally
for cities and towns such as Niles, Livermore, Hayward, Tracy
and San Ramon and now it’s our turn. The 128-page book
will contain dozens of pictures and historical information
and I will be knocking on doors and calling residents looking
for old pictures. If anyone has any historical pictures of
Sunol that I can scan for the book, please call 925-862-0505
or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I greatly
