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.

Spring has Sprung!

Folsom is beautiful year round, but especially in spring. Flowers and trees blooming, sun shining, and the trails full of runners, walkers and cyclists, which reminds me; be nice to each other and share the trail. Slow down, and pick up after yourself and your dog…Spring also means it’s time for the Folsom Eggstravaganza, where 25,000 eggs are hidden across 4 fields for 4 different age groups, and then wiped out in seconds. It’s fun, and quite a spectacle.. Happens this Saturday… After that’s over, you might need a beer. Head on over to the brand new Out of Bounds Craft Kitchen and Biergarten, opening Saturday at 13407 Folsom Blvd (they’ve got wine, too!)…Speaking of beer, Red Bus opened a couple of weeks ago. Check them out, too… PowerHouse Pub has some great live music this weekend, kicking off with Love and Theft on Friday… on the real estate front, the usual spring bounce hasn’t really started, with only 69 homes for sale in Folsom today, compared to 96 at this time last year…fingers crossed…that’s it for now…go have some fun!
