10th Annual 38th Street Blood Drive

10th Annual 38th Street Blood Drive

Posted by on Sep 4, 2018 in East Sac, Fab 40's, Volunteer | 0 comments

The amazing McAuliffe family is holding their 10th Annual Blood Drive on Monday September 17th. I’ve already booked my time for giving blood and I look forward to seeing many of my neighbors there. Below is the email they sent me because hearing about the event in their words is better than me trying to paraphrase it.   Dear Friends and Neighbors, We like to think the 38th Street Blood Drive is a party, and we hope you’ll consider joining us.  We’ll have tents and tables on the front lawn, and two bloodmobiles parked on the street.  As usual, we’ll be grilling sausages and pouring our favorite beverages. Our tenth annual Blood Drive occurs Monday, September 17  from 3:00-7:00.  To schedule an appointment, please go to bloodsource.org/drives and enter location code M597.  If you prefer, please call us at 451-5507 or email alicemcauliffe12@gmail.com with your preferred time and I’ll schedule an appointment for you.  If you have any friends who would like to donate, we’d be happy to schedule them as well.  Anyone 17 or older can donate.  Those who are 16 can donate with parental permission, using a form available on the bloodsource.org website.  Please remember to bring a photo id and drink plenty of fluids beforehand.  If you have any questions about eligibility, please call 800-995-4420 and ask for the “Nurse of the Day”.  If possible, please make an appointment so we have no gridlock and we know how many folks to expect.  We look forward to seeing you and having a good time. Year after year, you keep coming back, even on 100 degree days.  We are honored and touched that  you continue to support this very worthwhile cause.  We do this in memory of my wonderful mom, Rosemary Lonczak, who lived years longer as a result of numerous blood transfusions. Sincerely, Alice and Pat...

Sutter Park Neighborhood Updates

Posted by on Aug 24, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I got some updates on the development at Sutter Park Neighborhood at the East Sac Chamber of Commerce. I know that so many of the neighbors (and those that want to be new neighbors) have been eager for new details so here is what I’ve gathered from listening to Randy Sater speak at our luncheon. The builder selection is almost complete and they should be able to announce who the builder of the homes and the mixed use space be next month. There will be one builder for the mixed use development and one for the rest of the housing except for the 11 custom home lots. There are some changes in the development and the original cottages design will be replaced by some more traditional homes. The mixed use section will have about 3,000 square feet of commercial and it is already fully leased to include some upscale food, a barber shop and more. There will be flats ranging from as small as 900 to 1,600 square feet above the retail, accessed by elevators. I’m very excited to hear about these since they will be the smallest and most affordable units in the development. Pricing is still to be determined but there should be properties starting in the $600,000’s and the larger custom homes will be over $1,000,000. The current mix looks like there will be 38 Traditional homes, 17 Courtyard homes, 29 Garden Homes, 11 Cottage homes and 11 Custom homes. They are predicting that we will have lots of new developments some time next month including more information on the recently updated official website of sutterparkneighborhood.com. The streets should be going in in a couple weeks and finished lots should be ready to build on by November. Hopefully we will see the first homes completed late next Spring. Stay tuned, this Fall should bring a lot of great developments to the...

The Taste of East Sac, one of my favorite events of the year, is this weekend on Saturday July 14th! This is the 10th year of the event. I’ve gone every year for the past 5 years and it just keeps getting better and better.  More than 40 local restaurants, breweries and wineries will be offering samples of the delicious treats that they serve up in their local establishments and it will be more than enough food and drink for everyone. There will be music, a silent auction and over 500 of your neighbors and friends mingling at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church located at 600 Alhambra Boulevard right across from McKinley Library. The event starts at 6:00 and ends at 9:00 so don’t be late for this...

East Sac 4th of July Parade 2018

East Sac 4th of July Parade 2018

Posted by on Jun 28, 2018 in 4th of July, East Sac, Events, Fab 40's | 0 comments

The weather has heated up and summer is almost here! We’re just a week away from the biggest neighborhood block party of the year.  The East Sac 4th of July parade is a great way to start off your summer celebrations. Come and hang out with hundreds of neighbors and see all the amazing ways that people show their festive red, white and blue spirits.  Unless things have changed from all of the past years, the parade will start at 11:00 on 41st Street just south of J Street. The block will be packed all the way down to M Street and probably even half way down the next block.  Once the parade starts it will do a big loop onto J Street, down 42nd Street, around Folsom Boulevard and then finish where it started on 41st Street. Then it will breakout into a large block party with live bands and people milling in the streets and visiting with their neighbors. When we call it a parade what we really mean is a bunch of festive neighbors ambling along together and a few people sitting on the sidewalks or front lawns watching the masses of revealers doing the slowest walk around the block as possible.  Do as we do after the morning parade and go have a great block party and get to know your neighbors better or make your way to Cal Expo in the evening (or somewhere with a good view of the sky above Cal Expo) and enjoy the fireworks show.  I love the community that we have here in East Sac and knowing more of my neighbors here than I have in all of my pervious homes combined. Given that I’m never leaving East Sac or my home now that I’ve discovered them, the number of neighbors I know will continue to grow over the years due to great events like this.  Here are some pictures from last year taking by the incredibly talented Carlos Castille of http://www.castillephotography.com! ...

Apparently business has been good for me this year because it has kept me distracted from my blog and I’ve missed the first Pops in the Park of 2018! June 2nd was in East Portal Park with IdealTeam. June 9th will be in Bertha Henschel Park with AKA Live. June 16th will be in McKinley Park featuring Jessica Malone June 23rd will finish out the series at Glen Hall Park with The Count. All of the concerts begin at 6:00pm and as usual, there is free bike valet parking if you don’t want to fight for a parking space and don’t live close enough to walk in. I hope to see a lot of my neighbors when I make it out for some Pops in the Park fun this...
