When: Friday, November 17
3:30 to 5:00 pm

Just when the weather causes you to stay indoors more often, the Chinook salmon begin making their way back into the Guadalupe River to spawn. Come with the Friends of Guadalupe River Park & Gardens to take a look and see if you can spot some of these fantastic fish right here in downtown San Jose and learn more about their fishy ways with games and crafts.

Shout out to Bill Halleck, who got 400 daffodil bulbs from San Jose Beautiful for the public spaces in North Willow Glen. Last weekend, several hundred got planted in the median on Bird Avenue between Hull and Coe. Thanks, Bill!

At 11:30, we will have each candidate for District 6 say a few words and they will also take questions from neighbors. This is a great and convenient way to get up to speed on the positions of the various candidates."
