Continue the spirit of Independence Day at Pleasanton Downtown Association's "Red White and Blues" 1st Wednesday Street Party from 6-9 p.m. July 7.

The evening features booths up and down Main Street set up by a variety of businesses to market and sell their products and services. It's a good chance to stop in the downtown shops, too, and enjoy the restaurants.

Be sure to check out: Noland's Cake Shop handing out red, white, and blue cupcakes under the Pleasanton arch; the P-town Push Rods classic car show at the Coast Gas Station; and the Singing Blue Stars performing in front of the Veteran's Hall.

Stop at the survey kiosks at the Domus parking lot, 652 Main St., to share your 1st Wednesday experiences and get a chance to win a downtown gift card.

Las Positas College is again holding a summer transition program, Operation Gateway II -- A Veteran's Transition to Success. The three-day program, held July 15-17, is an orientation and workshop for returning veterans who wish to further their education at Las Positas College. Topics to be discussed include career planning, classroom expectations, readjustment services and Post-9/11 benefits. This is an opportunity for veterans to experience firsthand the community and camaraderie that they will foster and develop throughout their experience at Las Positas.
