Wednesday
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.

Monday, 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.
