Raise your hand if you happened to catch CBS’s
Eye on the Bay program last Thursday evening? And if not, you
missed a great segment on Sunol. They hit most of the tourist
spots such as the Sunol Coffee House, Bosco’s Bones and
Brew, Whistle Stop Antiques, the Sunol Train Depot, Sunol Regional
Wilderness and Elliston Vineyards. It’s so fun to see
our little town on the television screen and of course it makes
me feel very proud to live in such a beautiful place. The show
was based on Sunset magazine and their current May 2007 issue
that also features an article on Sunol.
I received an interesting email from Neil Davies of the Sunol
Business Guild. The subject line said “FREE FOOD”.
Well that will get anybody’s attention. He was actually
announcing the emergency preparedness meeting being sponsored
by the Guild.
The meeting will be facilitated by Marla Blagg, Emergency
Manager of the Alameda County Fire Department. Our own California
Department of Forestry will also be on hand to help design
emergency plans, community liaisons with local agencies, training,
and response plans. Neil also added that in the event of a
disaster the Sunol would be on its own for 72 hours without
emergency assistance. Neil wrote, “Ideally, every group
in town should be represented at this meeting.”
The meeting will be held this Saturday at the Sunol Train
Depot from 9:00 am. to 1:00 p.m. and yes, lunch will be provided.
Although Sunday is officially Mothers Day, we should all
appreciate our mothers every day; and, with that said, Sunol
is rolling out the red carpet by offering a few Mothers Day
events of our own. First up is the Little Brown Church’s
Mothers Day Tea immediately following the church’s
worship service which begins as usual at 10:30 a.m., and
then of course you have to feed her so stop by either Bosco’s,
Bones and Brew or the Sunol Valley Golf Course. Both the
restaurant and golf club are serving a special brunch buffet.
After having a great meal with Mom you can take her on a
thrilling ride down Niles Canyon provided by the Niles Canyon
Railway. So there you go Sunolians, you don’t even
have to leave town on Sunday.
Sunol Glen School assistant art teacher, Darlene Wexner is
excited to be announcing “Miss Darlene’s Art School
