Winters Youth Day 2010

Saturday, April 24, 2010 marks another Youth Day for the history book.  It really sounds like it is going to be fun and there is a lot of excitement in the air around town.  The Class of 1960 is celebrating their 50th Class Reunion this weekend and 51 of them are in town to celebrate.  They all have t-shirts on commemorating the event and they are marching in the parade, think they will take Sweepstakes?  Be sure to make plans and come and help us celebrate, you can go to the Asparagus Festival on Sunday.  Join in the fun and come see your friends or make new ones.  It should be great!

A whole lot of Shakin' goin' on.

Tonight, Friday, August 28, 2009 is the annual Earthquake Festival in downtown Winters.  Come on down to Main Street tonight and enjoy the festivities.  There will be great food, and music.  This is an annual event sponsored by the Winters Chamber of Commerce.  We celebrate the earthquake that hit Winters in 1892 that destroyed a lot of the downtown buildings.  It is a great way to reconnect with a lot of friends.  Come and have some fun and enjoy the new scene.

Our State Fair is a Great State Fair!

I am off to help out at the Realty World Capital Trade Group’s booth at the California State Fair.  This is the third year I  have helped.  I have so manyfond memories of going to the fair when I was a kid.    When I was growing up my dad judged the county exhibits, that was a big part of the experience.  How many turtles and gold fish did I bring home?  Totally lost count.  Every evening when it got dark they had fireworks which was huge attraction.  I believe this is still a tradition and that they are set off over by the race track.  Going to the fair is a tradition I carried on with my own kids.  So, grab the family or friends and head on over to Sacramento and have some fun and come by our booth and say hi.   Have a good weekend!

Winters FFA sweeps at Yolo County Fair

It was an exciting time in the auction arena yesterday at the Yolo County Fair.  The Winters FFA was well represented.  Many of the Grand Champion or Reserve Champion animals belonged to Winters FFA members and of course, my nephew, Tyler was there with his Grand Champion turkey.  Prices were sure down this year, I think the Grand Champion steer only got $2.75 a pound.   Too bad for the kids who put so much time and effort into their projects but a really lesson that there is no guarantee of any profit when it comes to making a living in agriculture, or any small business for that matter.  Kudos to all the kids and their families for being there and supporting them.   There is a lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make this a successful event.

Grand Champion, you Turkey!

My nephew, Tyler Tufts, had the Grand Champion turkey at the Yolo County Fair yesterday!  He is a member of the Winters High School FFA club.  He is the first member to ever raise turkeys and he is the first Grand Champion winner.    Needless to say, we are all very proud of him.  No, they are not wild turkeys, they are domestic, plain old white, Thanksgiving turkeys.  He could only enter one but raised 5.  If you want to buy one and support the FFA and write off your Thanksgiving dinner give me a call.  The auction is Saturday afternoon in Woodland at the Fair Grounds if you are looking for something to do.

I'm a Video Star!

Can you believe it?  Neither can I.  However, I had a videographer come to Winters last week and we made a video of my new listing at 106 Russell Street.  I think it might be rather boring but it is a really cute house and it was a fun experience.  Mike, the man with the camera fell in love with Winters.  Think he will do a nice job for me considering what he had to work with.  When I get it, which should be soon, I will post it here.  Think I should take some acting lessons.   Anyway, the point is to get the house sold and we are working on that.

The Lion Roars Tonight!

Taking the whole family, yes, all five of us to see The Lion King in Sacramento.  I have seen it once and had to make sure everyone saw it.  What a nice way to celebrate Father’s Day.  I know even the “old man”  will enjoy it.  If you have never had a chance try and find it palying somewhere never you.  It is very magical and loved how creative all the costumes and props are.  It is truly an amazing experience.  Hope you all enjoy tomorrow.
