All Ages View

AllAgesView By Abbey Murphy Can you believe it is spring already? Where did the winter go? We are already back in the pool for swim season. Seems like this school year is going so fast, the spring sports are starting, school plays are revving up (such as the Drowsy Chaperone at Modesto and Legally Blonde at Downey High) and final testing is starting to finish out the busy year. This April, the one and only Mira Jantz from Mira Bridal Couture will be giving plenty of tips and new hot trends for the upcoming prom season, so make sure to check in and get the best advice from the best in town! Our Modesto High Project Hope Club will be attending a Youth Action Summit in San Francisco so we can learn more ways to help locally and globally. It is great to give back where you can and to do it with friends is event better. March is a time of leprechauns, pots ofgold, and lots of luck. Think about this and realize that many people aren’t as fortunate as many in the community so be sure to give back this spring!

Here is a really great concept that you need to know about. We really can change the world.

What is a Really Really Free Market? An RRFM is a space where we can share our food, clothing, skills and other resources freely. Do you have stuff to get rid of or stuff you need? Do you have a skill or passion you would like to share with others?

Instead of putting listings and have strange people come to your house, save your stuff, food, yard things, canned food, tools, garden items save them until March 24 and take them to the Really Really Free Market at Enslen Park. Teachers, artists, performers and others with talent/gifts/experience or expertise are especially encouraged to attend. Some individuals will be offering FREE bicycle repair, computer help, and more services as they are organized. This will be a great opportunity to get to know Modesto while enhancing it. It is amazing what happens when the exchange of ideas, things and talent is free and available to all and everyone has something to give on March 24 at 10 am. Check out their facebook site and post your talents or needs. You can get there from

Please learn more at or other RRFM sites.
