San Ramon Valley Events – August 2015

Time flies when you are having fun! It seems like summer just got started and I am already hearing talk about kids going back to school. I hope that you are enjoying these summer months and have taken the time to get out and do something fun. My family loves the outdoor movie nights. If you have never been, you definitely need to go check it out. Bring a blanket and some snacks and head on down to one of the 4 showings this month. I haven’t seen “Big Hero 6” or “Lego Movie,” so those two nights are on my list. Whatever you do I hope you have fun doing it and I hope to see you out there.

Have a great summer!

As always thank you for taking the time to read our newsletter, and if you have an event coming up that you would like us to include, please let us know.
