A Time to Perform in September
Fall is on its way! It is one of my favorite seasons of the year. School has begun. The future beams brightly and optimistically. I am so impressed with the amount of local talent. There are lots of events to pick from whether dramatic, musical, poetic or artistic. If you are producing an event, please send pertinent information to Modesto View at<> Your help is greatly appreciated.

On a weekly basis, Kaye and Jerry enjoy volunteering in their daughter’s kindergarten class in North Highlands. Being grandparents to a bubbly, adorable little boy named Glen, who was seven in March and to a sweet, lovable almost 4-year-old Charlotte, is the BEST!
