San Ramon Valley Events – July 2014

Hello,

With the weather warming up and the days getting longer it makes us want to head outside and find something fun to do… Well at least when it’s not 106 degrees outside. When that’s the case all we want to do is sit inside with the AC on and eat ice cream….

Summer nights are always fun. The fourth of July is Friday, and The City of San Ramon is hosting its annual festivities at Central Park.  We won’t have a fireworks show again this year, but the city is working hard to find a solution and get them back for us soon. Another great option for getting out after the day has cooled down, is to go see a movie in the park. Danville is hosting two movie nights in the next few weeks. Bring the family, a blanket, some food and relax under the stars while watching a movie outside. When is the last time you saw Goonies? One of my favorites for sure.

Whatever you do make sure you take the time to get out there and have some fun. The San Ramon Valley is a wonderful place to live and explore. Have a very Happy 4th of July! Stay safe and take care.

Thank you,
Mike Continillo

P.S. If you have an event you would like us to post please send me the info.

When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain’s immediate service in their navy. The family’s narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre.
