MAKE A DIFFERENCE FESTIVAL includes Preserving Family History
One of the booths will be presented by the Oakland Family History Library, who can explain how to start researching your family history and keep those records safe in any emergency, so if you have an interest in your family history, attend the Festival on Saturday, Jan 14.
The main focus of the Festival features Volunteerism & Emergency Preparedness for Families by focusing on ways to get involved with the Tri-Valley community through volunteer service, as well as helping families to prepare for emergencies. (A great new year’s resolution and so appropriate for our current emergencies).
Saturday, January 14, 2023 from 10am to 2pm
At the Pleasanton Senior Center, 5353 Sunol Blvd
EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS – 72 Hour Kits, Water Storage, Food Storage, First Aid, Communication Plans, how to store important documents. The Pleasanton Police Department will hold police dog demos at 11am, noon and 1pm, and will bring a SWAT vehicle. The Fire Department will bring a truck.
COMMUNITY SERVICE – About 40 non-profits will explain their community service volunteer opportunities. This is a wonderful opportunity for students needing to perform community service and others just wishing to “give back” and enrich their own lives, especially seniors.
