Howl-O-Weiner Fun for Pooches

Posted: 10/30/2014

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Already the area’s most dog-friendly reserve—with off-leash play areas enjoyed by 4000 pets per month—Carmichael Park achieved more canine kudos last weekend. The second annual “Howl-o-ween” festival proved a hit with hounds and humans.

Small or large, pure-bred or mutt to the bone, doggies came dressed to impress. A costume parade, hot-dog dunking, and obstacle courses were hotly contested. While an English bulldog called Chloe-Marie won all hearts in a pink ballet tutu and bowler hat, Chihuahua Libbie’s food-hound appetite caused a small sensation in hot dog-bobbing trials. Painted in skeletal stripes, a black German shepherd called Kuma galloped around the agility course like a horse from the apocalypse. She took first prize in 29 seconds.

The pre-Halloween dog day out is sponsored by Carmichael Park District. Learn about other park events at www.carmichaelpark.com.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - In a Saturday morning remembrance ceremony, local families and the Carmichael Park District will honor fallen sons.

Central to Patriots Park (6825 Palm Avenue), a Wall or Honor bears plaques naming local men who died in service to community or nation since the Carmichael Park District began. While there is provision for more names, no new plaques were added to the monument this year. The November 1st ceremony will recall the sacrifice of 12 Carmichael and Fair Oaks’ sons.

Highland Festivities Bring Smiles

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Sporrans swung with abandon, bonnets were bonnie, men were manly, and knees hairy. Even wee doggies came tarted up in tartan. Carmichael Park was bang-on for a recent Celtic blow out.

Local branches of the St. Andrew’s Society, Shamrock Club, Daughters of Scotia, and Caledonia Club hosted the festival that is now an annual Carmichael tradition. From all over Northern California, Celts kilted up to make Carmichael home for a crackin’ ceilidh (party).

Dancers jigged and flinged. Fiddles, harps, bagpipes, and drums provided irresistible beats. Outreach was not just musical; clan organizations promoted ancestry research.

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - An eight-year tradition, the Columbus Day Olive Oil Celebration recently sold out at the Italian Cultural Center in Carmichael.

Fragrant oils baptized bread, lunch was eaten al-fresco, and New World discoverer Christopher Columbus—the first Italian American—was recalled. To please paisano palates, Gold River-based Pasta Queen, Susan Korec, served a feast of hand-made ravioli, linguini, and meat balls. Two authors presented a talk on olive growing in the California Gold Country.

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Thousands of Fair Oaks Boulevard commuters witnessed the year-long construction of the Chapel of the North American Martyrs at Jesuit High School. Until the ivory edifice’s recent dedication, its interior remained a mystery.

Initial revelations were reserved for 300 donors to the $16 million project. These supporters witnessed a debut mass that coincided with the 51st anniversary of Jesuit’s first day (September 17, 1963). A public open day followed soon after the dedication. The Chapel of the North American Martyrs is named for eight French Jesuits who gave their lives in service to the 17th century missions to the New World.
