Kids and their families are invited to take part in a Downtown Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 20, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Businesses will be providing free treats, as well as a variety of other family friendly activities.

The 2004 Alameda Islanders soccer team will travel to Europe this summer to take part in a 10-day soccer tour of France and England. This unique soccer experience will combine professional training sessions run by highly acclaimed French and English coaches. They will test their skills against local teams and cheer on their “WoSo” heroes while attending two Women’s Soccer World Cup matches in France. To help offset the cost of the trip and ensure all players can attend, the 2004 Islanders are launching a fundraising campaign.
