Wednesday, Nov. 20
Does the expense of college have you worried? Come to a presentation sponsored by the Davis High School PTA and learn more about paying for college. The event, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in the Holmes Junior High School multi-purpose room, 1220 Drexel Dr., will feature Beatrice Schultz, founder of Westface College Planning. Schultz will talk about steps to take to maximize financial aid eligibility, understanding the expected family contribution, cost of attendance, FAFSA and CSS profiles, and the true cost of college, comparing public and private universities. For more information, email mitchjen@comcast.net.

Nov. 25-27
* The city of Davis presents Tumbling with Turkeys, a three-day camp for children ages 5-12. Featuring gymnastics, crafts and games, the camp runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. The cost is $79 per child. For more information or to register, call 530-757-5626 or visit www.cityofdavis.org.

* Before you dust off the turkey fryer and find your favorite uncle’s stuffing recipe, make sure you’ve enrolled your kids into a Thanksgiving break activity program. The city of Davis has several Thanksgiving break offerings from Monday to Wednesday, Nov. 25-27, to tide your child over until the tryptophan can!

The Gymnastics and Dance Center at the Civic Center Gym, 23 Russell Blvd., is holding Tumbling with Turkeys from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. There will be gymnastics, games and crafts for kids 5 to 12 years old.

If forward rolls aren’t your child’s thing, how about Ninjaneering or a Junkyard Challenge? Ninjaneering with Lego is for children ages 5 to 7. They’ll build the Fire Temple (no actual flame involved), race Skull trucks and encounter the mighty Dragon. The class runs from 9 a.m. to noon at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St.

For older kids, ages 8-12, there is the Junkyard Challenge, which involves building elevators, bulldozers (not to scale), conveyor belts and other motorized contraptions out of Legos. The class meets from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Veterans’ Memorial Center.

For specific class information or to sign up, call the city of Davis Community Services Office at 530-757-5626 or visit www.cityofdavis.org.

Wednesday, Dec. 4
Students interested in 4-H, the largest youth development organization in the country, are invited to the Norwood club’s monthly meeting at 7 p.m. in the Holmes Junior High School multipurpose room, 1220 Drexel Drive. 4-H is for youths between the ages of 5 and 19.

Friday, Dec. 6
The fifth year of the Davis Parent University Lecture Series kicks off at 7 p.m. with an evening featuring author and educator Mike Riera. Riera is the author of “Uncommon Sense for Parents with Teenagers” and “Right from Wrong: Instilling a Sense of Integrity in Your Child.” The event takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Brunelle Performance Hall, 315 W 14th St. Admission is free and seats are first come, first served. For more information, visit http://davismedia.org/dpu.

Friday, Dec. 13
* Today is the deadline to submit a nomination for the city of Davis Golden Heart Awards. The awards are bestowed annually on junior high and high school students for outstanding community service or for overcoming personal challenges. Nominations are due in the Community Services Department, 600 A St., Suite C, by 5 p.m. Call 530-757-5626 or visit www.cityofdavis.org for more information.
