Now through Jan. 15
Registration for Davis Little League is open online and runs through Jan. 15. Current registration costs vary — depending on the division in which a child plays — ranging from $130 for T-ball to $310 for junior league. A new Challenger Division for special-needs players has been added. Kids ages 4 to 14 are eligible for DLL. League officials require players 9 or older to attend one of the to-be-scheduled January skills-assessment days. Only online registration is accepted. Visit www.davislittleleague.org to sign up or learn more.

Sunday, Jan. 19
The Davis High School Baroque Ensemble fundraiser — featuring live music, wine tasting, appetizers and a raffle — will run from 5 to 7 p.m. at Monticello Seasonal Cuisine, 630 G St. This high school group of violinists, violists, cellists and a bassist is directed by Grammy-nominated Angelo Moreno. The musicians are raising funds to go to Italy next summer.

Special guest Susan Leonardi, The Enterprise’s “Wineaux” columnist, will pour wine, Monticello chef Tony Gruska will prepare seasonal appetizers and the musicians will perform. Tickets are $30 and available at Watermelon Music, 207 E St., and Monticello. For more information, contact Melissa Collier at colliergirls@gmail.com or Patti Huston at patti.huston7@gmail.com.

Monday, Jan. 20.
The city of Davis is looking for talented students to participate in a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration from 11 to 1 p.m. If you can sing, dance, perform a dramatic skit or have other talents, please contact Judith Plank at 530-383-1711 or jpcats@cal.net.

Tuesday, Jan. 21
Students attending secondary schools in the Davis Joint Unified School District get a day off thanks to a teacher work day.

Saturday, Jan. 25
The Davis Baseball Academy will conduct player assessments/tryouts for its U13/14 squad on Saturday, Jan. 25, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Davis High School varsity field. Players who are 13 years old as of April 30, 2014 — or younger — are eligible for the tryout, which will determine the level of competition at which that athlete should compete. As of Aug. 31, the team will compete at the 14-year-old level. Players will be evaluated by a group that includes coach Kevin Keefer as well as other college and high school coaches and pro players and scouts. If there are enough players, two teams will be assembled. Tryouts for younger teams — players ages 10 through 12 — will come next month and will be posted at www.davisbaseballacademy.com. For more information, contact Keefer at 916-717-1914 or kakeef7@yahoo.com.

Scholarship tickets are also available through school counselors. Grad Night gives graduates a fun, safe and sober way to celebrate completion of their high school education. For the past 28 years, Davis graduates have been enjoying this event, which includes music, dancing, casino games, outdoor activities, shows and a huge raffle, with plenty of food and refreshments. Nearly 90 percent of graduates attend each year. Tickets are $90, which covers the cost of all activities, food and drinks for the entire evening.

Ongoing
Also, dig out that kindergarten picture of your senior to be sure they are included in the awesome “Kinder Wall” at Grad Night — send your pictures (copies are OK) with graduate’s names on the back, to: Sandy Langley at 2026 Klee Place, Davis 95618. Please provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you would like the photo returned.
