Around Town: 1st week of 2012

One of my goals I've set for this year (more on this tomorrow) is to get more readers on my blog. Or at least more comments. I like doing this around the town weekly post -- and hope that some fellow Sacramentans can find it useful. I'll try and be more regular.

First thing I want to mention is Winter Trails Day on Jan. 7. REI sponsors this free event at Royal Gorge Ski Resort so head on up for some fun / free snow activities. Hopefully we've gotten some more snow by then!

Williams-Sonoma always has great classes - so if you are in Sacramento, check out the list for January. If I didn't have to be at work - I would definately attend the Winter Dinner Inspiration class at 11am on Wednesday the 4th. The class are free unless noted (but call to reserve a spot.)

Another goal for the year is to support my community more. We are already members of the Crocker - which is great but I want to expand that in 2012. So I joined American River Natural History Association this year as well -- and we are thinking of joining the Zoo in July (in time for the Twilight Thursdays.) The ARNHA membership gets you free parking at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center - where they have great free and cheap events.

This Sunday, Jan. 8, they are offering at Nature's Art Box class at 1:30p at Effie Yeaw. Its free and supplies are provided. Doesn't get much cheaper than that!

Hope everyone enjoys their first week of 2012!
