San Ramon Valley Events – August 2014

 San Ramon Valley Events was created to bring all the fun and exciting events to you in one place. Our hope is that you will use the information to get out there and enjoy what San Ramon and Danville have to offer. From time to time this will also include raising awareness about important events that will have a large impact on our cities.

The hot topic of conversation for many of us these past few months has been the new proposed development called the “Faria Development”. This development will add 740 new homes to San Ramon and will drastically alter the hillside near Deerwood and Bollinger Canyon roads. The concern by many of the residents of San Ramon is that it is too big of a development and will put a large strain on the resources, environment, roads, and schools in the area. [Read more…]

San Ramon Valley Events – May 2014

Hello Everyone,

This past weekend my girls and I went up to Las Trampas for a walk. It had been many years since I had been up there, so it was like visiting for the first time. We ended up spending a couple of hours there and had a lot of fun. We walked a couple different paths, stopped to blow bubbles  (at 3 year old Sophia’s request). We had an impromptu picnic off the side of the trail, and made a decent effort to get to the top of the Bollinger Creek Loop Trail which climbs about 2000 feet. Not the easiest task when you are pushing a double stroller, but the views are amazing and definitely worth the effort. In the end the kids had a blast, I got a decent amount of exercise, and was able to spend a couple of priceless hours with my girls. [Read more…]

Hello everyone,

A BIG thank you to all of you for your continued support and for making this newsletter a success. Our goal is to provide you with fun new events to get out and enjoy each month.

There is a special event coming up this month that I encourage you all to participate in. This year’s Leadership San Ramon Valley class http://www.leadershipsrv.org/ is hosting a charity event at Gianni’s Italian Bistro in San Ramon http://www.giannissanramon.com Monday April 7th. I recently ate there with a friend, and the food was amazing. I am very particular when it comes to authentic Italian food (Love you Grandma!) and they did not disappoint. Gianni’s has agreed to host this charity event in order to raise funds for Discovery Counseling Center  http://www.discoveryctr.net. [Read more…]

San Ramon Valley Events – March 2014

Well the rain is FINALLY here and that’s a very good thing. We need it badly, so it’s a welcome sight. For those of us with young children, we all know that keeping them indoors for days on end can create lots of pent up energy just waiting to be released. The question then becomes where do we go so that they can run and play and be active, but stay out of the rain? I thought I would share a few fun options that Cynthia and I have explored with our girls.

One option would be to check out the programs that The City of San Ramon offers.   They have lots of classes and camps for kids of all ages which will allow them to sing, dance, tumble or learn in many different ways. Our girls are currently enrolled in the Kindermusik class, which they look forward to each week. [Read more…]
