Saturday
Birch Lane Elementary School will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a party at Davis Community Church’s Fellowship Hall, 421 D St. in downtown Davis. The event will start at 6:30 p.m. and will include appetizers, a dessert buffet and silent and live auctions. Tickets will be $10 and may be purchased at http://blepta.ejoinme.org/atickets or at the door. All proceeds will go toward helping Birch Lane students. For more information, visit www.birchlanepta.org or email Mike Clark at birchlanepal@gmail.com.

International House, Davis, 10 College Park, will host a program on Chinese New Year crafts for children from 1 to 3 p.m. Participants will celebrate the Year of the Horse by making traditional Chinese crafts, such as 3D paper mobiles, mosaic candles, panda cookies, goldfish kites, pop-up greeting cards and gift-money holders. I-House is at 10 College Park, and the program is for kids ages 5 -12. All craft supplies and instructions are included. An adult must accompany children, who should wear clothes they do not mind getting glue, paint or markers on. This program is led by a Davis High School senior as her volunteer project to raise funds to promote cultural learning and tolerance at I-House. Call 530-753-5007 to reserve a spot; the cost is $5 per child and there is limited space.

The annual Patwin Elementary School Walkathon and Silent Auction takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 2222 Shasta Drive. The walkathon — open to all Davis residents — is the school’s primary PTA fundraiser and organizers hope to raise over $20,000 this year to support a variety of school programs. In addition to walking, there will be a variety of entertainment, including face painting, a cake walk and dunk tank, as well as a silent auction in the multipurpose room. There will be an auction preview Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. and the auction will take place Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon in the Patwin MPR.

Monday
Local residents are invited to enjoy a burrito for a great cause between 5 and 8 p.m. at Chipotle, 227 E St. in downtown Davis. Fifty percent of the sales that evening will go toward a technology upgrade at Emerson Junior High School that has been four years in the making. The goal is to raise $1,500 that evening. Supporters must mention Emerson or the Da Vinci Charter Academy when they make their purchases.

Monday-May 2
Birch Lane Elementary School will sell plants and vegetables grown by students in the school garden next week. Lots of heirloom tomatoes and Baker Creek heirloom plants will be available, with all funds benefiting the school’s garden program. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. The school is at 1600 Birch Lane.

May 2-4
Come support Yolo County’s 4-H members who will be showing off their projects at the annual Spring Show at the Yolo County fairgrounds. Youths ages 5 to 19 will be presenting the animals they’ve raised as well as other projects including photography, baking, engineering, rocketry, archery and more.
