Local footrace draws runners from around the nation

In a tradition that recalls Mayor Ralph Appezzato, the Mayor’s R.A.C.E. or Ralph Appezzato Charity Event, a 5K race, was held prior to the Fourth of July Parade. The race’s proceeds benefit Alameda’s Midway Shelter for Women and Children.

 

The 2016 Alameda Mayor’s Fourth of July Parade is in the books. Winners will receive trophies at an upcoming City Council meeting. This year Rancho el Afortunado took home the Mayor’s Trophy. Riders aboard Rancho el Afortunado’s pure Andalusian horses also won trophies for Equestrian (Charro Class) and Sweepstaker. 

The Alameda Elks won the honors for the best float, followed by 510 Fitness and Kiddy Kampus Cooperative Preschool. 

Other winners were divided into the following categories.

Just after 9 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21, all 25 on-duty Alameda firefighters responded to an alarm sounding at Foss Upholstery & Restoration at 2318 Clement Ave. They arrived on scene to find smoke and fire coming from the building, according to an Alameda Fire Department (AFD) press release. 

The firefighters forced their way inside the building and attacked the fire. They cut holes in the roof to ventilate the structure. Firefighters extinguished the blaze just after 9:30 p.m.
