Posted on: April 20, 2018

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…

Journalist and Folsom Resident Christina Mendonsa

Cristina Mendonsa

When veteran journalist and Folsom resident Cristina Mendonsa left News10 in June,  many of us wondered about her next move.  Would she go to another station? Another career? Another town?

We caught up with Cristina today, and she said that although she’s currently interviewing in other media markets, she is happily producing a new series on Folsom, because, “I love this community and have raised a family here.”

So, while we’ve still got her around, we can look forward to installments of Cristina’s new venture with the Greater Folsom Partnership called, ‘Folsom Focus’.

Available to watch online and as a podcast, Folsom Focus is a new hyper-local video series offering an upbeat and unbiased look at the present and future of Folsom.

Her first installment is about the completion of the Johnny Cash trail, opening this weekend.

For fun, you might want to take a look at another feature from MyFolsom’s wayback machine, ’22 Questions with Cristina Mendonsa’ from about 2004. www.myfolsom.com/resident-guide/myfolsom-coms-20-questions/22-questions-with-cristina-mendonsa/

Lastly, get out there this weekend for the opening of the Johnny Cash Trail!
