Antioch Veteran's Day Parade

Antioch Veterans Day Parade 2014

Every year I attend the Antioch Veteran's Day Parade. It's a nice way to pay tribute to all the service people who fought for our country. This event would not go on without a lot of work and sponsors. Jeff & Josie Monaghan, Leo Fontana, American Legion Post 161, Martha Parsons, VFW Post 6435 and Kiwanis Club of the Delta-Antioch. I get a big kick out of watching and listening to the Antioch, Deer Valley, Freedom and Liberty High School marching bands. Thank you all for participating!

While I was waiting for the parade to start on Tuesday I watched an unusual ship come down the river. I have no idea where they were up river, what type of cargo it was carrying but it did say Hong Kong on the back.

Who Needs Tree Trimming or Garbage Hauling?

A few years ago I needed some serious tree trimming. I got some quotes and found out wow this is going to be expensive. Then along came Salvatore. He did the job for about a third of the price. He did a great job and now I use him all the time. Need some help call Salvador 848-5127.

Lone Tree Golf & Event Center

4800 Golf Course Rd. Antioch | (925) 706-4220

Think about this. The golf course is always open (from early in the morning, to late at night), seven days a week including weekends and holidays (lots of people golf on these days so that's why they are open). It's the restaurant that never closes.

Did you know that all the golf carts have been equipped with the newest DIGITAL GPS CADDY SYSTEM? Now you know exactly how far away you are from your target.

Also there is a lighted driving range that stays open until 8PM. Large buckets (more than 100 balls) are about $10.

More than 300 people have made Thanksgiving Day reservations so call and make your reservations now. See the Thanksgiving Day Menu? Here's an idea, let Lone Tree Catering cook your Thanksgiving To Go.

Lone Tree's Catering department handled more than 300 inhouse banquets last year. Also, they will cook (for your event) and you can pick it up. They also cook, deliver, setup, serve and cleanup for you. How accomodating is that? Call catering (925) 706-4232.

Pacific Coast Farmers Markets

Bay Area Wide | (925) 825-9090 or (800) 949-FARM

Two weeks left for the Brentwood Farmers Market this season!

Leeks are the pick of the week. This hardy vegetable is related to both the onion and garlic and is found in farmers' markets year-round. Leeks' onion-like fragrance imparts a rich flavor when cooked in soups or sliced raw in salads. Leek recipes.

Taste the difference of locally grown produce picked fresh.

El Campanil Theater, Antioch CA

I went on a tour of the theatre this week with some facebook pals and the theatre manager Rick Caraher gave us a tour. I have sat in one of those seats many times but have never been onstage. Now I know how that feels. Thanks Rick.
