San Ramon Valley Events – June 2015

Many of my conversations with new folks moving to the area include the topic of what a great community we have here. For those of us that live in the San Ramon Valley, we know firsthand what a great place this is to live. What makes it great are the people who live here. I love the fact that I can be at the grocery store, or walking around town and feel comfortable enough to chat and be friendly with everyone I meet. The main reason for creating this newsletter is to help foster that strong sense of community, and provide a list of social events for us all to get out and enjoy. With that said, I hope to see you all out there soon.

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.
