'Week of the Stars'

The Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation (PPIE) is hosting its "Week of the Stars" event from this Saturday through Oct. 24 to generate support for Pleasanton Unified School District students and educators.

The fundraising program includes a "Great Auction" being held online starting this Saturday (Oct. 16) at 9 a.m. There are also opportunities to make general donations to PPIE.

A "Teacher Appreciation" function allows residents to sign up for free and offer comments of praise for their favorite PUSD teacher. The nonprofit will then do a lottery drawing and issue gift cards to selected teachers.

SCS Property

Dublin city officials are virtually hosting their second visioning session on the future land-use and preferred development for the SCS Property, located between Tassajara Road and Brannigan Street.

The 77-acre site has been the subject of local debate for some time, including with the ultimately rejected At Dublin project concept.

The session, set for 7 p.m. Wednesday (Oct. 20), will focus on ideas shared since the August meeting and initial concept land-use plans in response. Visit dublin.ca.gov.

Sunol history

East Bay Parks is presenting an event at Sunol Regional Wilderness this Saturday (Oct. 16) from 12-4 p.m. on the long history of the parkland in southern Alameda County, "starting with the Ohlone Peoples who called the area home for millennia, and continuing through a century of ranching and homesteading."

The free event, hosted by naturalist Kristina Parkison, will celebrate the land's history with music, crafts, games and other activities. Call 510-544-3249.
