Reminder: Tree Lighting Ceremony Tonight, Parade Tomorrow

December 04, 2009

Quick reminder that the Los Gatos tree lighting events are now underway at the town park plaza (next to the downtown post office at Main Street and North Santa Cruz Avenue)!  The tree will be lit at 6pm & afterwards the carriage rides will begin.  Tomorrow is the town’s annual holiday parade at 11am. Please be advised that this is a popular event (this year there are 285 entrants!) so parking can be a challenge. Get there early!

Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!

Homes Sought for Horses

December 28, 2008

I picked this article up thanks to Google Alerts (for “Los Gatos”). Horses are at the wrong end of hardship with this poor economy, and several individuals and agencies are trying to keep these beautiful animals from ending up in the wrong hands. One of them is right here in Los Gatos.

Love horses? Got room and the ability to care for them? Have a look at the article in the Contra Costa Times:  Free to a good home — the horse of your choice. (Scroll to the bottom and find an equestrian do-gooder in Los Gatos.)

As for me, I wish I had room and the budget. I have fond memories of riding horses in south San Jose and at Garrod’s in Saratoga as a kid here. My parents had a home next to a horse ranch, and as a teen I felt like I was in heaven just to see the horses graze each day. For today I’ll have to settle for spreading the word, but I would love to hear more about this from folks involved.
