Greetings from ModestoView | 02-12-2019

ModestoView News Letter

Greetings Friends!

Are you loving this wet chilly weather?  We are going to be wishing for this when it’s July.  We have some of the best snow in a long time and I think we are really starting to see some hope for the summer, but we need to watch out for flooding.  Please stay away from the rivers and creeks. Be safe.

This week there are loads of activities to keep you going inside and out.   Here is something for your “must do” list.  Raisin in the Sun will be presented at the Gallo Center by the Sankofa Rep Group. This is one of the classics as we celebrate Black History Month.  Get your tix at and you can read all about this group and events happening in our area in the Feb ModestoView Magazine.

Guys and Gals, Sams and Sals, you know what this week is right?   Valentine’s Day.  Trust me, you do not want to blow this, and your show of affection can be big, small, expensive or thrifty, store bought or hand made, but one thing is for sure, show the people in your life that matter that you love and appreciate them.  The rest is up to you and if you check out our Facebook page, there are some great gifts you can win and a list of local retailers that have something special for this special day.

This is all about the love in our community, for our people, our friends and this place we call home or visit.  Hope you get out an explore and feel the love yourself.
Best to you all – Chris Murphy

Black History Month

By John Ervin

It is that time of the year where we celebrate Black History Month, which is also celebrated in Canada, United Kingdom and the Netherlands. However, in all actuality, one month out of the year does not begin to celebrate the work, life, accomplishments, achievements and challenges of African Americans in the United States and around the world. Literally, every day is a day in Black history. Read More

There is always time for some romance. A quick date with your wife, partner or significant other is always possible.
