Longtime Fourth of July Parade Committee members left to right: Kendra Williams, Mark Sorenson and Barbara Price kick off the 2018 Fourth of July Parade (above). The trio will be out there again today, leading the community in what has long been rumored the longest Fourth of July Parade in the nation, and therefore, the world. Word from Price is that in 2020 the City of Alameda may be taking over production of the parade from the volunteer, nonprofit committee. The new arrangement has Sorenson and Price stepping down after more than a decade of service.

The Alameda Junior Golf Club summer series returned June 26 on the Chuck Corica Golf Complex with a co-ed scramble tournament.

The team of Adrian Davis, Neil Albeida, Levi Pero and Katherine Scheingart won with a net 59. 
The team of Tyler Thai, Chelsie Chin, Isabel Kim and Eric Koh finished second with a net 61. 
The team of Brice Chin, Anders Vieaux, Dylan Parod and Veronica Samala finished third with a net 62.

The Alameda Blaze 10-and-under girls’ softball team (above) won all six of their games over the June 14-16 weekend to win the Petaluma Father’s Day NorCal ASA Tournament. 

The Blaze routed the Santa Rosa Red Barons, 14-6, in the title game. The match was stopped in the sixth inning after the Blaze overmatched the Barons by 8 due to the mercy rule coming into effect.
