* The César Chávez Student Council is sponsoring a used book sale on Wednesday and Thursday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. for the public to help raise funds for new lunch tables and other school activities. More than 5,000 gently-used quality books, CDs and DVDs for children and adults will be available at reasonable prices. All soft cover picture books and kids chapter books will be 25 cents and hard-cover books $1. For more information, contact Sara Caulfield at scaulfield@djusd.net or Kathy Roggenbuck at kroggenbuck@djusd.net.

Saturday, Dec. 15
* Come to Candy Cane Court — aka Henri Court in Wildhorse — on Saturday for a lively celebration. In its 10th and final year, the beautifully decorated neighborhood will welcome Santa from 6 to 8 p.m., and members of the Holmes Junior High and Davis High School bands and the Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh will be there to perform.

Says homeowner Kristy Powell, “After 10 great years, thousands of candy cans, tons of food for STEAC, and winning $100,000 for our schools (from a nationwide contest sponsored by Patch.com, a local news website owned by AOL) this will be Candy Cane Court’s final year.”

Visitors are asked to bring a can of food for STEAC, a camera and their holiday spirit.

Friday, Dec. 21

* Today is the deadline for the City of Davis Golden Heart Award nominations.
