News Digest: Free flu shots for vets, Geocache game in Livermore & Rise Against Hunger

Flu shots for vets

The Pleasanton Public Library is set to host the VA Palo Alto Mobile Medical Outreach Team on Monday morning to facilitate free flu shots for veterans.

All participants must make appointments in advance with the library and be pre-registered with the VA Palo Alto Health System. Visit www.va.gov or call 925-373-4700 for information on local registration.

For the flu shot clinic in the library parking lot, veterans with appointments should drive up to the designated area and provide their names and the last four digits of their Social Security numbers. VA Palo Alto staff will verify registration for care before administering flu shots, city officials said.

The event runs from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Monday (Nov. 23) at the library at 400 Old Bernal Ave. Call 925-931-3400 to learn more.

Geocache game

The city of Livermore has launched a free community activity, a geocaching adventure with L'more the Basset Hound (or "Asset Hound") designed to be COVID-safe for participants of all age.

L'more has hidden five caches throughout Livermore so residents can learn about community-owned assets such as roads, traffic signals, pipes, buildings, and more. Geocaching is a modern-day treasure hunt for all ages.

"The cache will have a QR code to a fun quiz and a clue and coordinates to the next location," officials said. "Anyone who finds all five caches before Jan. 5 will be entered in a raffle to win fun prizes."

Find the instructions and gamecard at www.livermoreassets.net/geocache-2020.

Rise Against Hunger

Lynnewood United Methodist Church in Pleasanton is hosting a virtual 5K and 10K walk, run or bike fundraiser for Rise Against Hunger today through Sunday.

"We cannot meet to package the 10,000 meals we normally do at our events. Yet we still want to make a difference for the children in underdeveloped countries by providing donations for life-changing programs that support them," church officials said.

Participants can take their own walk, run or hike ride to support the event any of the three days. "Come by the church and say hi. Event bibs, buttons, snack bars, water and a friendly wave await you," officials said. The church is located at 4444 Black Ave. To learn more, visit lynnewood.org.
