Wine Tasting, Cars, Coffee, Antiques…

Spring has kicked into high gear, and this will be a great weekend to get out and celebrate it… Let’s start with our weekly car show. Did you know we’ve got one? That’s right, ‘Cars and Coffee’ happens every Saturday from 8am to 10am at the Palladio Center, and features classic cars from the 20’s and 30’s to modern times. It’s free and fun… Folsom Pickers has their big Antique and Vintage Market on Sunday. Pick up some  vintage, farmhouse, shabby hand crafted items, homemade, repurposed, furniture, home decor, collectibles and antiques, and much more… You know what’s across the street from there? Why, it’s Red Bus Brewing Company. They’re family friendly, you can bring your own food, or get a bite from one of the visiting food trucks. Oh, and they have beer… Do you prefer wine? Head on up to El Dorado County for the annual Passport Weekend. Get yourself a designated driver for this one, as your ticket gets you in to sample at 20 wineries. Each one unique, and with food and music, too…Me, I’ll be running in the annual Giant Race at Raley Field. Wish me luck… Being a Realtor, I’m going to be working, too. We’ve seen a slight increase in homes for sale in Folsom this week. We are sitting at 90 (plus 8 condos). Not enough for the demand, but slowly increasing… That’s it for now. Get out there and enjoy this little slice of paradise…

Interesting stuff going on around town… I popped by the Folsom Community Center yesterday to join about 50 others in saying goodbye to Folsom Police Chief Cynthia Renaud. Among the crowd were some of her officers, some city workers, and regular citizens who wanted to show appreciation for her 7 years of service. She’s headed off to lead the Santa Monica Police Department. Good luck Chief, and be safe out there…  This just in, Folsom City Manager Evert Palmer has named Commander Rick Hillman as our new police chief. Commander Hillman has been with Folsom PD since 1995. I first met him many years ago, when I worked on some parent education seminars on teen drug and alcohol abuse.  Great guy. Long time resident. Nice to see them hiring from within. Congrats, Chief!… Arthur Murray Dance Center invites you to a free celebration of 3rd anniversary here in Folsom, promising mucho margaritas, nachos, and of course dancing… The Folsom Historic District is holding their annual Spring Arts and Crafts Fair on Sunday… Also, the immensely popular new Out of Bounds Brewing Co is having a grand opening celebration all weekend long. Check it out… That ought to keep you busy.
