Japanese residents of Davis and their families and friends invite local residents to stop by their booth Saturday at the Davis Farmers Market to buy hand-made Japanese crafts and trinkets to support emergency relief efforts for the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in northern Japan.

The booth will be open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the market in Central Park, Fourth and C streets. “Please visit us to find out what we are doing here in Davis to help deal with this worst-in-a-lifetime natural disaster,” a news release said.

All donations will be given to the American Red Cross.

How to spend block grant money?

Local government leaders will seek public input next week on how to spend federal money on services to help low-income people attain the skills, knowledge and motivation necessary to achieve self-sufficiency.

Public forums are planned for Tuesday and Wednesday in West Sacramento and Woodland. The forums will be conducted by the Yolo County Community Services Action Board, in coordination with the Yolo County Department of Employment and Social Services, to guide programs for the 2011 and 2012 Community Services Block Grant funding cycle.

The forums will run from 4 to 6 p.m. April 5 at the DESS, Community Rooms 1 & 2, 500-A Jefferson Blvd., in West Sacramento, and at the same time April 6 at the DESS Community Room at 25 N. Cottonwood St. in Woodland.

The block grant money “also provides low-income individuals with immediate life necessities such as food, shelter and health care needs,” said Matt Rexroad, who chairs the Yolo County Board of Supervisors.

For more information, call Robert Lilly at (530) 661-2770.

Flower arrangers to meet Wednesday

The April meeting of the Davis Flower Arrangers will begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Eleanor Roosevelt Circle, 675 Cantrill Drive in Davis.

After a brief business meeting, Lisa Tara, owner of Kiyos Floral Shop in Sacramento, will present a program. She has 36 years of experience in the floral industry and will demonstrate her arranging style with tropical and spring flowers. Refreshments will be served and the public is invited.

This is a change from the program announced earlier in the year.

For more information contact co-presidents Tina Crutcher at (530) 662-9035 or Phyllis Baecker at (530) 758-7814.
