Briefly: Sail club holds open house

By
April 14, 2011 |

Lake Washington Sailing Club will host its annual Sail a Small Boat Day from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

Sailors from the club will take members of the public on safe, free sailboat rides on Lake Washington. The open-house event is an opportunity to see, learn about and get the feel of a wide variety of small sailboats. Refreshments will be available.

Visitors should bring a life jacket if they have one; otherwise, the club will provide one.

To get to the club from the Capital City Freeway, take the Harbor Boulevard exit in West Sacramento, and turn south onto Harbor, then right on Industrial Boulevard, and go about 800 feet. Watch for signs on the left to the clubhouse.

For more information, email Bob Balkow at [email protected]

Genealogy Club will hear researcher

The public is invited to the Davis Genealogy Club’s April program, “Border Crossings,” by family history researcher Lorenzo Cuesta at 1 p.m. Monday at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.

Cuesta’s own research experiences in overcoming typical obstacles, such as secretive relatives and misguided county clerks in Mexico, can help researchers facing similar blocks. His tips for examining official manifests and naturalization records can guide anyone seeking ancestors at border crossings.

For more, visit http://www.davisgenealogy.org or call Lisa Henderson at (530) 753-8943.

Mental illness is speaker’s topic

John Buck of Turning Point Community Programs will speak on the topic “ Mental Illness and a Path to Recovery” at 11:30 a.m. Sunday at the Davis Friends Meetinghouse, 345 L St.

Turning Point provides psychiatric services, support and advocacy for people working to overcome the effects of mental illness in Yolo, Sacramento, Stanislaus, Merced, Placer and Nevada counties. In Davis, Turning Point manages Pine Tree Gardens, a residential group home program.

This presentation is sponsored by the Davis Friends Meeting.

Tour the Arboretum by bike Sunday

What better way to tour Davis’ largest public garden and outdoor classrooms than by bicycle?

Local residents are invited to enjoy a sunny afternoon cruise Sunday around the UC Davis Arboretum’s many gardens. Bring your bike and meet at 2 p.m. at the Arboretum Gazebo on Garrod Drive on campus. Free parking is available along Garrod Drive and in Visitor Lot 55.

For more information, call Brett Anne at (925) 286-5485 or visit http://arboretum.ucdavis.edu. In case of rain, the ride will be rescheduled to May 28.

Workshop looks at local government

Yolo County Board of Supervisors Chair Matt Rexroad and Dotty Pritchard, his chief of staff, will host a local government workshop from 9 to 11 a.m. Tuesday in the Board of Supervisors chambers, 625 Court St. in Woodland.

The free workshop will include a behind-the-scenes look at county government and a short walking tour of the County Administration Building.

“Yolo County recently completed another successful Resident’s Academy (Yolo 101) series,” Rexroad said. “For those that participated and want just a little more, or for those who missed this series, this local government workshop will allow you to visit county departments and learn how county government works for you.”

For more information or to sign up, contact Gary Engel at (530) 666-8044 or [email protected]
