The thrilling show of competitive roller derby is returning to the city of Alameda this weekend.
The San Francisco Bay Bombers of the American Roller Derby Skating League will take on the Los Angeles Firebirds Saturday, July 19, at Alameda Point Gym, 1101 West Red Line Ave. in Alameda. The two squads took part in an exciting exhibition last year and the rematch is expected to be just as intense.
City hall recognizes tireless efforts of once vice-mayor, perennial volunteer
The city of Alameda teamed up with the Arnerich family to surprise the family patriarch, Lil Arnerich, at the July 1 City Council meeting. His children, grandchildren and great grandchildren turned out to witness Mayor Marie Gilmore read a proclamation that declared the week of June 29 to July 5 “Lil Arnerich Week.” Lil’s wife, Norma, expressed her delight that she was able to get Lil to the council chambers without his knowing about the proclamation. She stood by his side at the dais as Gilmore read the city’s decree.
Stephanie Bellato swept all winning categories on her way to win the Alameda Women’s Golf Club’s July Charm last Thursday, July 3, on the Earl Fry Course.
Bellato shot the lowest net score with a net 67 — the event standings were based on each golfer’s net score. She also had the lowest gross score with an overall 77 and she shot the lowest number of putts with 29.
The sight of professional tennis players clad in pink, a barbecue to the side, a raffle and participants with smiles all around marked the success of the first Rally for the Cure at the Harbor Bay Club.
University of California, Davis, graduate and professional tennis player Chris Aria organized this fundraiser on Saturday, May 31, with the support of the nonprofit Susan G. Komen Foundation.
