ModestoView News Letter

Greetings Friends!

Today we celebrate and honor the legacy of the hard work and the dreams of Martin Luther King Jr. as we work together to treat everyone as equal and with respect. That’s what makes a great community.

This week is another full speed ahead week with cool music workshops and amazing funny comedy at the Gallo Center with Modestan,  MAMA Winner and national comedy star Marcella Arguello at the Gallo Center. Don’t miss this. This weekend, we celebrate local business at the Modesto Chamber of Commerce Annual Awards Gala. You can get tix at the Chamber.

We are going to get a break from the rain and it will be a good week to get out and enjoy Modesto area living.  Try a new restaurant this week, check out a new cocktail and go hear some live music.  There is so much to do.  Make sure you check our amazing “best calendar in the region” at

See you out and about!  – Chris Murphy

ComedyView: Winter Cooties

By Felicia Aleman

Hello, hello, hello. Happy new year. A time for new beginnings and changes and welcome the baby New Year.  I’m sorry to say that it is also time for another visitor: The Cootie. Cooties and I have been getting to know each other well. The kind of cooties that have you freezing one second and sweating the next. The kind of cooties that have you coughing up a lung, but only when you’re trying to say something important. Read More

New Year, New experiences!

By Monica Barber

Beginning the New Year is a great time to openly embrace new ideas and experiences. Ms. M finds herself finally coming to a stop on a sunny winter afternoon and realizes how quickly the new year is upon us. Since the days and years move by so quickly try making 2019 something to remember.
Ease into the new year with a Science Night at the Museum!  Read More
