Yet another year of music is coming to a close at East Avenue School. Having nearly 30% of students enrolled in a music class keeps everyone busy.

Now, under the baton of Drum Major David Davisson, here’s the East Avenue Dolphin Band playing "Silver Eagle" by Andrew Balent."

Girl Scouts of Northern, CA, Cresta Blanca Service Unit, serves almost 800 girls and their families in Livermore. From Daisies to Ambassadors, their mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character.
With money earned during nut and candy sales in the Fall, cookie sales in the Spring, plus other fundraising events, these girls are able to go camping in Pescadero, surfing off the coast of Santa Cruz, and go zip lining in Fairfax.
Earning the highest honor a Girl Scout can earn, the Gold Award, opens up employment and college opportunities galore.
